We've got some friends in the village who live on a beautiful old estate full of amazing trees and buildings. When we first went round a year or so ago I noticed a huge fig tree/bush against a shed opposite their house and asked if I could try an make a fig tree or two of my own from it.

I dug a little hole and pinned this branch to the bottom of it. Filled up, the plan to leave it for a few months at least to create some roots. The bamboo cane is so I can find them and to stop the mower from cutting them off
|Covered over - waiting for some rain on it now!|
I did five of these so I'll let you know in a few months time if any have taken!
The next tree I want to propagate from is their mulberry tree, so any advice for that one will be appreciated!
