Same for me Daniel. I've never had a notification and there is no sign of nutcutlet's test I'm afraid.

Thanks nutcutlet. How long should it be before the notification comes through do you think ?

Many thanks Dove. Moving it from the greenhouse tomorrow into the conservatory. Can't trust the GH not to drop below 0 if the winter's bad.

I have this plant, it's been flowering magnificantly all summer but I'm not sure what to do with it now. Where shall I keep it over the winter and how should I deal with it in the spring ? Will it come back or should I take cuttings ?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Forgive me folks but I couln't work out where to post this query. I don't seem to be getting e mail alerts when my posts are answered despite my adress showing in my preferences. Any ideas anybody/mods ?

Many thanks.

Interesting Verdun, thank you. You say to prune, presumably any time now, but won't I just be cutting off next year's fruits ?

Thanks for the tips everybody. I was rather hoping there might have been some culinary use for these babies but I will now compost them tomorrow and look forward to next summer.

Thanks both. Nutcutlet, do you mean that if I leave them alone they might ripen next summer ? We inherited the tree 4 years ago when we moved into our house, East London, and this is the first year it's had any fruit. I was so excited when they appeared but as the year's gone on they don't seem to have grown any.

Not sure whether this should be on the cookery board but my fig tree is covered in fruits about the size of grapes. I know they're not going to ripen now but does anybody know what they could be used for ? Seems such a same to let them go to waste.
