Area growing and installation of trees

8 years 7 months ago - 8 years 7 months ago #19844 by Fabrice Decroix
In winters, my figs are in the greenhouse. In summer, I leave the cuttings, seedlings and a few trees that I have to work.



Presently, I have trees everywhere









I have another greenhouse for yamadori, shitakusa and one ficus :)

Fabrice,
Why the huge interest in figs? How did this start or develop?
I like seeing your greenhouse and wintering structure.

Hello

Peter,

In the first greenhouse, there are mostly ficus. I have my very first plant, Schefflera. A small cutting offered by my father. And there are also some seedlings from my various trips, like Hura Crepitans and acacia sp.

Outside, still a lot of ficus, as well as boxwood, green oak, Scots pine and hawthorn, all collected in the wild. In the second greenhouse, there are basically boxwood collected this winter.

Peter, could you explain or give another word for "the bug" I can't understand the meaning.

Jerry,

My first bonsai was a ficus retusa. I always love, collect seeds of flowers, trees, and planting them. Then I had a second ficus retusa (this one is dead). I discovered the ficus religiosa and the history around this tree. A sacred tree, temples, buddha, India. I love to travel. I searched the internet for information on ficus, I made my first order on the site of seed Silverhillseeds in South Africa.

In most parts of the world, the fig trees are present and there is often a history between the tree and the local populations.

Some African population uses wood of Ficus natalensis to make clothes. Fig trees have many uses in the kitchen, in medicine, in religious beliefs. I find it fascinating.

There is also the relationship between animals and fig trees. For example, when most of the food runs out in the woods and waiting for the rains, the ficus sycomorus still gives her figs and is a true aubenas for monkeys, birds, I can not remember the exact number, but there are more or less 40 different species at this time on this tree.

Reproduction is also fascinating. Its different mode of growth are extaordinaire, the stranglers, the plains, on the rocks. There are deciduous tree...

I stop because I risk of get bored. I hope the English translation is understandable.

It's an Aussie term meaning the "you are very much into something" Fabrice, in this case it's Bonsai that you are into. Hope that helps explain. I will try to be more conscious of the culture differences mate. :)
