When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants arrive in stock (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall, preferably sooner. If you will not be present at the shipping destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you cannot leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days and expect it to survive.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from the plastic bag, store the trees/plants in a basement-cellar-garage, cover their roots with sand-dirt-sawdust-wood chips and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground.
For best success, be sure to choose a tree that will grow in your USDA zone, has an appropriate number of chill hours for your climate. If a pollinator is needed, make sure they're planted within 50 feet of each other and will bloom at the same time. Finally, what are your desired harvest intervals (all at once for canning or spread out for fresh eating)? Enjoy!
Sub-tropical fruit and drought tolerant. The sweetest develop when the daytime temperature regularly exceeds 95°F. Thrives in most soil types, as long as it's well-drained. Mature trees are hardy to 15°F. Will re-grow from roots if winter-killed. Grows to 25' tall and 40' wide if not pruned. Figs need warm soil for their roots to start growing.
Figs do not like to be planted as bare-roots and are difficult to establish, so we sell these No. 1 size trees (2' to 2½') in pots to enhance their survival rate. Trees are 1 year old and should begin to fruit in same year you plant them.
All our dormant trees (except Pecan trees) and berries come with a limited replacement guarantee.
