Hello from Plainview NY
« on: June 09, 2021, 01:40:11 PM »
Hello everyone. I just start growing figs last year. I am from Plainview NY (Long Island). I live 5 minutes from where the Belleclare Nursey used to be location. Wishing I had been growing figs when they were still open.

Welcome!  Look around. Look for certain topics by using the search feature.  If you look at the free stuff section, you can see what has been already been given away and what may be coming in the near future.  Those that have received free trees should be paying it forward by sharing cuttings in the near future.

Welcome to the forum.    If you want to participate in future giveaways, it is important that you enter your complete name and address in your profile.   Only members can see it.   As well, fill in a wish list in your signature line.  Members often send cuttings out of the blue but won't know what to send if you don't have a list.

Though this is SouthernFigsForum, there are many northern growers.   I think you will find a lot of information here to help you grow your figs.  I'm in NJ and quickly went from 4 varieties to over 100 in 4 years.    The site is addicting.
Wish List: Black Tuscan, Black Zadar, Bordissot Negra Rimada, Buzzone Nero, Cessac, Col de Dam Gegantina, Cravens Craving, Figoin
