Took my figs out of the garage today ( again ).
Hope this was the last time I had to take them inside till Thanksgiving. I'm still sore from taking them inside last week.
There was little frost damage on the leaves but they should bounce back.
From this point on they're on their own. Just hope there are no more frosty nights.

This is a sample of my fig collection, I hope you enjoy.

RE: Progress

Hey Rafed thanks for sharing the photos of your trees with us. We also can share with sore backs as well. Looks like you did an outstanding job getting all those different fig varieties to take root.

I hope all of us have a very good fig year this time so we can enjoy shall I say the fruits of our labor.
Good luck with them.
Take care.

Lou,
All these pictured with the exception to the 1gl on the 2nd picture were already potted when I optained them. Therefore I can't take all the credit. LOL

The Capelas, Gosh, Melanzana Merdascola and Genovese Nero were recently obtained from Adriano.

Thank you,
Rafed

RE: Progress

Just potted some cuttings today.
I potted up two Enricos, Vicenzo and Nardi Black. All of which I got from Paul.
I also potted my Iraqi fig, I put it into a 1gl. and then placed it in a larger pot and filled with mulch to make it look full.
Planted my Kiwis and mt Night Blooming Jasmines as well.

Things are starting to take shape.
When I return from my trip I plan on adding some hanging baskets in the yard.

RE: Progress

Rafed! What gorgeous roses! Beautiful colors.

The magnolia fig looks like it has some odd growth patterns. Do they all look like they are upside down, like weeping figs? I like that one.

RE: Progress

Vivian,

The Magnolia does appear to be an odd growing fig. Similar to the Weeping. I use garden stakes to hold the main stem from bending/folding. I also use bamboo sticks to hold the branches and keep them from breaking from the weight of the figs. The fruit gets large when it ripens. I was lucky enough to taste a few last year but most of them went to waste because we really didn't have a summer.

I will keep posting the pics throughout the summer.

Dennis, Wait till late June or early July. That's when everything is in full bloom. I think you're going to love it.

The season has shifted another gear and all looks well.
My fig trees look great and I have many Many figlets and I can't wait!
And Yes, With the help from Bass I was able to add more variants to my collection. Thank you Bass.

Here are some pics I'd like to share with everyone.

Dan,

I just remembered,

Will keep you posted on this one.

RE: Progress

Thanks.

FYI, McBeth is another "large fruit" variety Loquat. LSU is now recommending both McBeth and Big Jim for our area. Maybe one day they will be easy to find at local nurseries.
