FYI - for the Tampa Bay, FL area members, Lowes on Waters Ave in Tampa has Green Ischia figs on clearence for $3.  They are dormant, but they look to be in pretty good shape.

Thanks for the info! I'll try to stop by this weekend.

Whereabouts are you? I'm just a little north of Tampa.

You could always buy up all they have and re-sell them for 3X's that come spring when they've leafed out. Most any small fig tree is worth $9.99 when it's nice and flushed out.

Just a suggestion. I know that's what I'd do anyway :) .

you can buy them, and use them for grafting, at least practice grafting...

I actually live in St. Pete and work very close to that Lowes.  

I think if I came home with any more fig trees, my wife would kill me, regardless of my intentions to sell them.  

The figs are on clearance racks towards the back of the outside garden center. 

Just realized I misspelled clearance on my post title, oops.
