Fall is upon us and our trees our trees have settled in for their winter's rest. We've finally had a chance to pot up all our trees and have done an inventory for the year. As a result, we're making our larger, 3 gallon, trees available for bareroot shipping. Our 3 gallon trees are priced at double the price of our normal trees due to their size. We had a good growing year and the trees were very vigorous. You should expect that the 3 gallon-sized trees are, in general, 18-36" tall and very well-rooted. Some were up-potted rather late so they didn't have a chance to fully fill their 3 gallon pots with roots. If you're into propagating from cuttings, you should be able to pull 3-4 cuttings from each tree.
Unfortunately we cannot offer a guarantee on our bareroot trees due to the unpredictability of winter weather and the subtropical nature of fig trees. We successfully store our trees in pots in an unheated, insulated garage for the winter and they all do very well with minimal care. Please order only if you're confident in storing trees for the winter, otherwise you may be better off waiting to order in spring.
Orders placed this week will ship the week of 11/23 or 11/30 (weather permitting). Shipments may be delayed to 11/30 due to the Thanksgiving holiday. We'll continue shipping, winter permitting, into about mid-December.
Shipping rates are $15 per order plus $2 for each tree (1 tree = $17, 2 trees = $19, 3 trees = $21, etc). Because we're a small outfit, we require a $100 order minimum to ship your order. We don't aim to make money from our shipping, just to cover costs.
Finally, we're offering discounts on several of our cultivars: LSU Gold, LSU Tiger, Lyndhurst White, and Sal's Corleone. These are very nice trees and are available for 25% or more off their normal price. Our Sal's Corleone trees are very large and were in their second leaf this year.
Orders are secure and are processed through our payment provider, Square.
