Think you got what it takes?
Here's the opportunity to show off your rooting and grafting chops! All the cuttings material in this listing comes from bona-fide sources and fig trees. These are the small, bits and pieces that collectors just can't throw out but never get around to rooting. So here's your chance! I've assembled the cuttings and not going to let them sit around. This is an auction for twenty-four (24) cuttings of fourteen (14) wonderful varieties. Great for budding collectors or to increase your already growing collection. 100% of auction proceeds except shipping charge will be donated to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. Cuttings will be shipped via USPS First Class mail. The auction is open to US figgers only but anyone is welcome to donate to St. Jude at any time. These cuttings come from two other veteran collections in addition to my own. The other sources graciously donated this material and would like to remain anonymous.
I think this is the first time a variety pack like this has ever been offered. In the past this material would have gone by the wayside. Today, with the emergence of advanced rooting techniques and expansion of fig tree grafting into the hobby, these cuttings suddenly have a value. In addition to making your collection worthy of royalty, you'll be donating to a most wonderful cause, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. St. Jude's has done great things to help find cure's for childhood cancer. Winning bidders must know that donating to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital will make all of your figs root and grow happier and healthier. It's a fact.
Take advantage of this economical method of fast tracking your collection and don't miss out on this cuttings pack. Please be aggressive, bid heavy and don't let anyone outbid you!
