Southernfigsforum 1st anniversary
« on: July 25, 2019, 09:45:47 AM »
We are happy to announce this month marks the first year anniversary for the southernfigsforum. This has been a lot of work for us here on southernfigsforum.

We also created a lot of controversy with our format with the idea of sharing. This isn't a New Concept it's an old concept one many clubs and groups used to do they used to share their varieties to make it affordable to own.

In doing so we also created a lot of resistance and have been attacked both here on the Southernfigsforum and personally. Some members might have observe this this morning on attack that we had right here.

We call these people the Fig Mafia they want to control the market and the pricing on fig varieties. These individuals and groups definitely don't approve of us giving away rare new varieties of figs. My guess is that were hurting their bottom line in order for them to make money.

Well here on Southern figs we love to share and give away free .cuttings and fig trees to our fellow fig enthusiast and members here on the forum. Our only request is that you share the same generosity to a new member here.

Southernfigsforum is here to stay. If you look up and Google us on any fig varieties we have posted you will see us in the top page of the search results.

We are now getting top ratings and started to be discovered everywhere and we've only been around for one year. We are growing at a very very rapid right now thanks to Fig enthusiast and to all you members let us say thank you and thank you very much for being part of a group that really matters.

As a newbie to fig growing, I have found this site so helpful and in so many ways.   Thanks JD and Steve for all your efforts starting the site.   And the Pay it Forward philosophy is contagious.     I just gave away my first two fig plants this past week.   I will be offering a Malta Black and Adriatic JH in the months of August and Sept to keep the giving going.   Now, I just need to perfect the packaging to minimize the damage from overzealous USPS employees.   :)
