    Little Miss Figgy!

    Posted by Marcia Mosko on Oct 31st 2022

    My Little Miss Figgy dwarf fig tree arrived in perfect condition and it even had several little figs on it. My local nursery had theses trees earlier, but they were sold out when I went back to get one. I was thrilled to find one on the Plant Addicts website. I planted the tree in a Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrel that was cut in half and placed it between my newly planted apple trees. I have heard that I can grow figs with this tree on the Oregon Coast. We will see! I would submit a photo to show how well she’s doing, but I don’t see that I can.
