Tryon Palace in New Bern, NC

New Bern, NC(Zone 8a)

Although I live in New Bern and attend the semi-annual plant sales at Tryon Palace, it's been a few years since I bought a ticket, toured through the palace and adjacent homes, and saw the gardens in-depth. There are no photos allowed inside the buildings, but the gardens are very beautiful, even if now is the time between tulips and the summer blooms. June 1 is a free garden day, with a symphony concert on the lawn in the evening.

Sigh, I LOVE peonies. Drooling on the keyboard here and how about those figs, no fruit on mine yet.

Mine either. I have four fig trees, one big, two small and one medium. One of the small ones has black ends on the end of the branches, and no leaves (until yesterday, that is, when a green leaf sprouted at the base of the trunk). Maybe there's hope. Hope it was the cold winter and not some bug.

PS - the figs are esplaiered against a brick wall. I think the heat really helps.

Yes, that would explain it. (Well, that and a few skilled gardeners, LOL)

And copious amounts of the right fertilizer?

Entlie,

Glad to hear your figs are just starting. Mine still look dead but we are a zone colder so I am holding out hope if yours came back mine aren't too far behind!!

Glad I read this thread! My fig is espaliered against my back fence and one limb needed to be trimmed off.
I went to Tryon with my Mom many years ago. I really need to get back up there!

Entlie, I am in love with your little town. I have heard many people say that it is a wonderful place, but had never seen pictures until now. I was curious what Tyron Palace was when I saw the post and have now spent 3 hours just seaching the internet for pictures of it and of your beautiful and incredibly interesting town.

Once I move I plan on visit your little town. Thank you so much opening my eyes..
