I have a large fig tree that I think is a texas everberrying and have grown to love the figs every morning
but I have been wanting to try growing a few other types but I can not seem to find any where I can buy them for less then $8 or so. Is there anywhere I can find rooted cuttings or small plants cheap

Dtrade, Almost Eden sell nice small plants for 10 dollars. I've bought some on sale last year for 9 dollars. All of them grew into some very nice trees and have produced figs this year. I hope this helps.'gene'

For $8, you can barely buy a few petunias. I would think that $8 for rooted fig cuttings would be fair.

Unless what they are selling is a little stick with a few water roots, which I would be reluctant to pay anything for. To me, a rooted cutting has enough roots established in soil that you know it is going to make it.

I've never seen figs for as cheap as $8. But if you tell where you are located, maybe someone knows of a hobbyist who sells cuttings.

Sometimes 1 gets lucky, here is plant i bought from nursery called Jerusalem fig. Basically unknown to owner of nursery here in next town over, a plant was given to nursery from a greek man from his neighborhood and propagated.I was able to see parent plants not for sale and they had figs on them not ripe at the time of purchase. So i take the chance. Total cost 9.27 with tax last one he had.
Very healthy roots i cut open carefully pot and save all roots then transplanted into 3 g container.

What a great find and this is such a pretty little fig tree, which looks very healthy on top, as well. I think the shape of the leaves is beautiful. Please keep us informed how this little one does for you as it grows.


RE: looking for rooted figs

I bought one Fig Plant from Amazon (Nursery in Chicago)for $10, It was shipped in small pot and I transplanted it into a bigger pot. It is doing very well. Thant is the way to buy Figs. Be aware of the so called 3Gallons bare foot and cost $50 dollar. It is a gimmick to waste time and money it does not work. Don't buy Barefoot.
Does any one knows an orchard within 75 miles from Annapolis Maryland. I want to buy trees with dirt on the root. I will pick it up.

We have a large fig grove with over four hundred tress in Chantilly, Va. We sell fresh figs retail and wholesale as well as potted material at times. And

PS for original poster, zone 7 covers a multitude of sins and places. A state would be helpful as zones 7 do differ a lot.
