Jogee, I've heard of people doing that. I think it can work, but I think there are better methods. These 2 links shows the method I am using. I used shredded cypress mulch that I get from Walmart. I put the moistened mulch in a big plastic tote and bury my bundles of cuttings in the mulch. When they start showing small roots I pot them up in 1 gallon pots. I get about 70% success with them.

Guy down the road roots them during the winter in a jar on his window sill. From your link, they say they are the easiest fruit to root. Must be why I'm having luck with them. I pulled the plastic off mine once I saw leaf buds forming. They look nice. I only did six but all six have new leaves on them. I'll pot them in 1 gallon pots when it cools a little and hopefully have them planted in early spring once the chance of frost is over.

I have been working towards making an edible landscape in waste areas around the farm. Unfortunately I have been the plants worst enemy because I'll sometimes forget where I plant something and it gets sprayed with herbicide.

The fig tree is growing but no other figs yet and the one on it hasn't really done anything at all . I am transplanting it and then at the end of August it will go into a greenhouse for the winter to keep growing . So we will see what goes on over winter .
Did I say winter :yuck: :(
