  1. Hello,

    I need some guidance with grafting highly sought fig varieties on a potted fig plant. These cuttings are expensive to purchase for the rare varieties for the graft. I have never done the grafting. Does anyone here have experience grafting specifically figs and have any guidance to make the fig grafting successful? I’d love to talk to someone who has good experience grafting figs. Thank you for the help!

  2. Good afternoon, Sir. I took an advanced course on Trees and Tree Care this past year and learned a lot. In most of the classes you learn how much you don’t know. We had a section on grafting but I will not instruct you how to do it. I will, however, send you to some professionals who do. The first is: Metro Maples (Scott Hubble, owner) , I mention him because he grafts many of his maples in production. Its not a fig, I know, but he can certainly give you basic tips. The next is Steve Houser, Arborilogical Services Inc. , Texas A & M Extension Services offer many sites and much information for foresters or gardeners. Lastly, go online to youtube videos on how to graft. I’d certainly check the credentials of those hosting and check with several professionals before you begin. Good luck and I’d love to hear from you.
