PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Nice job. It will look even better painted and a nice vine climbing over the fence. The painting will be a challenge on the lattice work.
Question, How thick is the wood used for the door ?
Is that a fig tree on the left ?
Thanks, Dwight. We just bought a bronze leafed clematis 'Freda' to grow over it. Can't wait. Must do the painting first-not looking forward to it... but the reward is in reach...
The door is built with cedar 1X6 boards-framed on back with 2x4s. I will attach a photo of the back of it.
Yes, that is a fig tree-'Brown Turkey' I think is the cultivar. Supposed to develop ripened fruit best in Pacific NW climate. I have it potted in a large pot and sitting on the RV pad which is concrete. It has fruit but no where near ripened. First year with it so don't know if the fruit will ripen or when.
I have a Brown Turkey, given to me last fall, about 2' tall.
I planted it out this spring, it's about 3' now and we have eaten a few figs from it.
The skin tasted like leather but the flesh inside is nice, maybe next year I'll be able to make some jam.
