Oh, fig…

It may not look like six potted figs in the back of my truck, but yes I have adopted  six plus a Passion flower that was stuck in one of the pots.
I was walking the dogs the other week; when I stopped to chat with a neighbor. As I was walking away he called me back and asked me if I would be interested in taking his fig trees, he was clearing out his green house …." yes, yes, yes". I had know idea he had so many , but anyway I took them all.

Nice heavy pots as well . I did repot them all , as they were very root bound . 

Each one with a tin tag , it's name etched  on : Panache , Lattarula, Petite Negri , Condria , Meta's  and Mary Lane.
I already have two fig trees …now we are eight !


  1. How cool! I'm sure you'll give them a good home!

  2. Your fig grove will be magnificent. I was wondering if those pots were part of the deal. Some score!

    1. Jean, Yes it was; and I think he was very happy to be rid of them , he still have a few in the ground.

  4. Wow, what a fabulous score! Fig jam in your future...

  5. Nice - you're going to have to host a taste testing session. What a selection!
