I don’t know about you, but when my Spring plant orders start to arrive it feels like Christmas all over again (minus the drama, stress, tantrums, hangovers, chocolate and food coma).
This is the first one of my orders to arrive and the plants are in really great shape – thank you Logee’s! It contains two figs (Petite Negra & Desert King) and a persimmon (Fuyu) – all destined to live their lives in containers. One of the fig trees actually has two immature figs happily growing. I love that they will fruit so young and in containers. They’re incredibly rewarding and very easy to grow.
Some of you may remember my post from last November about planting a fig outside (zone 6) – I hate to say that I don’t hold out much hope of it having survived this brutal winter. Thus, three new trees for containers (I also picked one up at the Philly Flower Show).
The persimmon is going to represent more of a challenge but they are supposed to adapt to containers well, this particular one should only grow to about eight feet. Hopefully.
So what orders are you waiting for? Did you choose anything new that you’re totally infatuated with and can’t wait to arrive? Did you over-indulge in all the crazy sales (I did)? I’d love to hear! It makes me feel better!
