Rawmodel – Planting a Fig Tree the Organic Way

Videos are brought you from YouTube to match what you are looking for here on Gardening Resources. If you would like to see a specific video or have a subject covered, please don\\\’t hesitate to let us know.

www.blackbirdnaturals.com http We’ve been planting lots down in Arizona, and our latest addition is the wonderful Black Mission Fig. We planted it in the slope of the hill so there were more rocks to deal with, but with this “dish of love”, we have created a beautiful pocket for the tree to thrive. By the way, I know I said fungi(s)…I rolled my eyes as soon as I heard it haha. Thanks everyone! Enjoy and start planting! No better time than now!

    I just planted my fig tree today. I used steer manure and native soil, and a little bit of mulch on top and bottom of the tree.
    My 20 bucks fig tree also bought at home depot is much smaller than your.

    Wow! Thanks so much for posting. My 12yo son and hubs are preparing an area for a garden and within a year, we’ll start planting fruit and nut trees. I love figs. Keep up the great work. Very inspiring.

    Good that you planted high like you did. Most people don’t know that if you plant above the root can kill a newly planted tree. And as you said they always settle down after watering and such.

    is this a good time to plant fig? I just got a pomegranate and I’m still learning how to take care of fruit trees.

    I’m so excited to see that you’re doing more videos. I’m learning a lot about the raw diet from you and I love to watch people practice permaculture. We all need to share our ideas. Great job!
