Rooting Figs Indoors
Here are 2 easy methods of fig propagation for indoors. This methods can be utilized any time of year.
Take fig cuttings from small branches that are about ½ to ¾ inches thick with about 3-4 buds. Make sure you put a straight cut at the bottom just a little below the lowest bud and an angle cut above the highest bud.
Next take some 16-18 oz CLEAR Solo cups and burn about 3-4 drainage holes in the bottom with an old soldering iron. Put about an inch of good quality moist potting soil in the bottom of the cup. Dip the bottom of your cutting in a powered rooting hormone which can be purchased at almost any BIG BOX STORE. Place the cutting, flat side down, into the center of the cup and pack the rest of the space with a good moist potting soil then lightly water your solo cup. Place a 2-liter bottle with the bottom cut off over the cuttings using it as a humidity dome.
Keep the fig cuttings in warm and in a bright (not direct sun) window. Don’t water unless the soil becomes very dry. Watch the roots develop inside your clear Solo cup. Wait a week or so after you see new top growth to remove the makeshift greenhouse. When you see vigorous root growth, plant your rooted fig cuttings in larger pots or outdoors when the weather allows.
Obtain a clear plastic container similar to a shoe box in size and shape. Moisten some sphagnum moss and place about a 1” deep layer in ½ of the plastic container. Dip the bottom of your cutting in a powered rooting hormone which can be purchased at almost any BIG BOX STORE and place your cuttings, bottom first on the moss. Then place a 1-2” layer of the moisten moss on top of bottom half of your cuttings. Put the lid on your box and place your prepared cuttings on a warm spot such as the top of your refrigerator. Inspect it once a week until roots appear. When you see vigorous root growth, plant your rooted fig cuttings in pots or outdoors when the weather allows.
As you can see, propagating fig trees is a simple process and when done properly, is a satisfying and economical experience.
Figs trees can produce fruit during their first season
CHESTER THORNLESS BLACKBERRY STARTER PLANTS
CHESTER BLACKBERRY PLANTS
Great all-around blackberry — firm but not tart. It is the most productive plant of its kind that you can grow in the upper Midwest. Fruit won’t soften, leak, or lose color in the South either. Tolerates hot, dry weather. Productive canes yield berries perfect for fresh-eating, preserves, and baking. Summer-bearing floricane. Late season. Ripens in July. Self-pollinating.
At the close of the blackberry season, here comes the granddaddy of them all, the prolific and rambling blackberry Chester. Managing the robust plant's meandering vines is well worth the fall harvest of near-perfect fruit. Chester's medium-sized jet black berries are exceptionally sweet and rich. Allow fruit to ripen on the vine for easy harvesting.
What Is a Goji Berry?
The goji berry, also called the wolfberry, is a bright orange-red berry that comes from a shrub that's native to China. In Asia, goji berries have been eaten for generations in the hope of living longer.
Over time, people have used goji berries to try to treat many common health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, fever, and age-related eye problems. Goji berries are eaten raw, cooked, or dried (like raisins) and are used in herbal teas, juices, wines, and medicines.
• Goji Berry plants grow to a Height of about 7 feet tall, and the weight of the berries cause the branches to arch over into a Weeping configuration that makes the berries very easy to harvest
• The thorn less dynamite goji Berry shrub is self pollinating and produces intensely sweeter berries when grown in the full sun or slightly shaded
• The brilliant Red berries look much like Small peppers and can be eaten fresh when they ripen in June, or the berries can be dried for eating later
• Mature Height ( 5-7 feet ) -- mature width ( 5-7 feet ) -- light requirements ( full sun to partial shade ) -- hardiness zones ( 5-10 )

Celeste is the standard by which all other figs are judged on sweetness and flavor. If you've ever eaten one you know why it is also called the Honey or Sugar fig. It produces small to medium sized pear shaped violet to light violet fruit with red pulp and white to amber flesh. Very reliable for the South and Southeastern US and excellent cold tolerance. Small productive and hardy trees for the home orchard. A tight to closed eye provides good resistance to spoiling and the fruit is unlikely to split.
Celeste is excellent fresh, dried, or preserved, fruit may occasionally dry on the tree. The delicate ripe fruit droops when ripe and the skin may check once fully ripe. It is known to produce a small breba crop but it seems that it does this where winters are mildest. Celeste is known by many names but according to Dr. Condit it is probably most accurately named Malta. Considered to be second only to Brown Turkey for cold hardiness.
