I know very little about cuttings. Do they have roots already? How tall are they? I've never dealt with cuttings and don't want to waste/kill them if I get them. Thanks!

These are dormant, unrooted cuttings. They need to be rooted in a mix of peat and perlite at 60-80 degrees in a shady situation. Figs require additional humidity to send out roots so I enclose them in gallon zip lock bags until leaves start to fully form. A search on the web will find many other ways to do rootings of dormant cuttings.

Thank you for the great information! I don't think I have the time and ability right now to root my own cuttings, but I hope there are many who would benefit from your cuttings.

miekal,

Are you open to receiving envelopes stuffed full of cash? That's my most sophisticated mode of financial transactions at the moment.

Cash is fine as long as it is in US dollars. Foreign currencies are virtually impossible to convert where I am. But please email me in advance to confirm that I have what you are looking for. All cuttings are limited in number and in duration of season when I can cut them.

Thank you so much for the beautiful cuttings, I just got them today. And thank you very much for improving my odds of success, though honestly with my very limited skill set I expect very little ! generally I plan for a 99% failure rate on any new endeavor.

Well, I learn more from killing plants than keeping them alive. Just read up on the net about how to root and don't put them in direct sun where they can dry out quickly... Thanks for the order...

I have another week or two of currant and elderberry cuttings left. I still have quite a few fig varieties.

PLEASE say you're going to have more cuttings next year!!!

I'm way out of position for this year, but you have EVERYTHING I want to plant and and couple things I hadn't considered. I have been researching online all winter in anticipation of my wife getting her immigration visa so we can FINALLY get ourselves to Maine and get our homestead started.

I wasn't sure of figs would grow this far north and am thrilled to see you have them going in Wiscy.

Put me down for at least a half dozen of Blk currants, grapes, kiwi, pears, elderberry and figs.



Geez I hope yer not a Badger fan.

It's very easy to grow all of these things in containers for a year and then plant them next year. Containers are very portable, and in fact some things that I root, that's the way I do it and plant out the second year. Figs are not hardy in the ground in Wisconsin. I have a portable fig orchard of about a 150 fig trees in 2-7 gallon pots. They're all still in my basement for a few more days. We just had our last hard freeze a few days ago.

And yes I should have all of what is listed and some new listings if I'm lucky.

Thank you. We're in Ukraine at the moment and won't be stateside until July or so and we don't even have a lean-to on the lot yet.

I'll keep your contact info handy and be ready to order next year for sure.
