Posted: 17/02/2014 at 09:44

Hi Fig, we used greenhurst shaft, or shaft greenhurst not sure, they were stunning, loads of pods full of sweet peas,they need decent support as they grow quite strong and about 4 foot tall,we also dipped the seeds in paraffin to stop the mice eating them, one or two were still dug up but not eaten i just pushed em back in, the year before without dipping in paraffin our allotmenteer neighbours lost almost all to the mice ,old but good trick and it works.  Alan

Now thats a gret prog i havnt heard it before,im onto in the future and interesting views on the figs, i just might try both ways as iv got a good selection of figs coming along for the future,iv found direct planting for the cuttings is better than in jars, they seem to settle very easily and quickly,and there seems to be somthing rather special in growing fig tree cuttings i get quite a buz, i cant put my finger on it, maybe beaucaus they look such a nice tree, why aint my spell check workin nar  cheers Dove miduck
