Many people sent me cuttings for my fig class but it was cancelled by the host at the last minute.  I'm rooting them now.  Some of the cuttings I gave to a community charitable organization but they don't want all of them.  There are many avenues I could use to give them away.  If you gave cuttings and have a specific request let me know.  Some molded in a refrigerator failure.

  If a local High or Middle school has an AG program you could infect a whole new generation of fig enthusiasts.

 It isn't until someone has a fresh, off the tree fig, that will make them understand.

Grow it, and they will come, lol.

 Take care, Mike

Wish list; Martineca Rimada, GM-149a, Negra d' Agde, Maltese Beauty, Galicia Negra, Flanders.

With all those fig cuttings you're the richest guy in the fig community!

Suggest plant them or give them away.
I am sure people gave the cuttings so the cuttings don't go to waste & to spread the love of figs.

At end of fig cutting season (soon) if I have cuttings left I prepare an area in my garden & stick the cuttings (1 bud above ground).   Keep moist all summer.
End of summer I end up with a bunch of trees that I can give away or sell for a good cause.
