Rooting the Brown Turkey figs
After quite a bit of experimentation,
last year I settled on a very simple (but effective) method of
propagating figs. I take hardwood cuttings and sink them about
eight inches into damp stump dirt
in a pot, put the pot on a heating pad, and ignore it for a few weeks
until I need the heating pad for something else. I water
occasionally during those heating-pad weeks and during the subsequent
weeks, keeping the soil at the moisture level appropriate for
seed-starting (or just a hair drier), and put the pots in a sunny spot
once the leaves begin to push out of the buds. By the end of the
summer, the cuttings are extraordinarily well rooted and are ready to go
into the ground.
