The fig experiment continues. I have eight cuttings from a fig tree in Northern Virginia. I stuck three in the ground in my backyard. I wrapped three in wet paper towels. I put two in a mason jar filled with water.
Last night I got around to using the potting soil and rooting hormone that I purchased the other night. I treated the three twigs from the paper towels and the two from the mason jar by dipping them in the rooting powder before sticking them in the soil. My wife suggested that I reuse a plastic package as a planter. It originally held three pounds of grapes.
While I was at it, I put a sprig of rosemary in potting soil inside a cut-off water bottle. My wife had been keeping it in water since a cookie-baking party seven months ago.
