Description

Greetings !!!

 Up for auction is this grafted cutting of Sant Augusti.  This one originated from Thierry in France and was one of my top new varieties from 2023.  It has that intense berry flavor that I look for.   Along with that, it had a rain resistant sweet paper skin that I also like.   I can't wait to try more of it this summer and will make sure to make a tasting video when the crop begins.  The photos used in my listing are my own. 

I used Hardy Chicago as the rootstock on this one and it seems to be making it grow like a weed!  I recommend using the Bamboo stake that I used in shipping or staking this in some way to support the plant so that it can grow with the stake.   In my experience, grafts are a good way to improve the vigor or the plant, but the graft union can be a weak point when young.   It's a smart way to ensure your plant isn't damaged by a random bird or strong wind in the first few months.    Often times, I support my first year cuttings with bamboo anyway as it seems to help them grow tall and straight.   So, I would strongly recommend supporting the union for the first growing season in some way just as an added level of protection.

The starting bid on this variety is the "Reserve" and I believe it to be a more than fair price based on demand and this years recent sales. Buy it now disappears with the first bid.

You will receive the exact plant that is photographed.  This one is grown in a 4"x 9" Stuewe & Sons Tree-pot along with a professional growing mix.   These pots make shipping and growing cuttings a breeze and are easy to transplant.   It should have a very nice root system and should rebound from transplanting easily.  Once transplanted, I think it’s always a good idea to place the newly planted tree in a shadier location for a week just to make sure it can recover adequately in its new environment.   This is especially true when replanting in a southern location or when the temperatures are above 80.   The Heat and sun intensity can be quite different in Texas for example compared to Michigan.

Some notes on Shipping: 

I STRONGLY suggest using Route insurance: Click here to read about it!!!!.

My growing operation has been inspected by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.  I'm licensed to ship to ALL US states.  However, I will not ship to Hawaii, Alaska, or Puerto Rico simply due to the distance and cost associated with this.  In my opinion, sellers that ship plants with the comments "buyers are responsible for knowing their states laws on importing live plants." or "buyer assumes all responsibility for confiscated plants" do so irresponsibly.  Selling and receiving plants without a proper inspection should be avoided. 

I will ship Tuesday-Friday purchases on Saturday and Saturday-Monday purchases on Monday/Tuesday (in case of a holiday, this may change slightly).  The faster your invoice is paid, the faster I can get your plants out.   Please make sure your Figbid and Paypal shipping address is current and accurate.  Please be able to receive your plant after completion of the auction.   Holding plants becomes very confusing and time consuming for me.   I can do this if absolutely necessary, but I will need to add a $15 charge to the invoice for the extra care involved.  Combined shipping is available automatically upon invoice with multiple auctions being won or purchased through FigBid within the same week.  Figbid combines these automatically, so it's best to wait and pay after all of the auctions you're bidding on for that week are complete, otherwise you will be charged the full shipping charge with each invoice.  I usually prefer USPS, but boxes over 22" cost quite a bit more to ship.  I will also gladly use UPS if you desire, but I must know this as soon as the invoice is paid.  I reserve the right to use UPS if plants go over the 22" mark.   Please reach out to me beforehand if there is an issue with that.  Again, I STRONGLY suggest using Route insurance: Click here to read about it!!!!.

Thank you for your support and happy figging!!!!!

Return Policy
Please buy Route Insurance upon checkout. https://figbid.com/Help/#Insurance Dan Foster has a rock solid return policy. In the rare instance that you are not satisfied, please let me know immediately and I'll make it right with a refund or exchange. Please understand that I do my best to correct shipping delays and lost packages but those issues are out of our control.Shipping Live Plants is always a tricky endeavor. I strive to carefully pack and ship your plants with care but, they are live plants, and sometimes it gets hot! If you don't have a safe place out of direct sun and heat to receive your packages, please reconsider ordering from me until the weather is favorable or be willing to take on your share of the risk. If you have a plant that you received and it's not doing well, please carefully unpack and water it. Place in a cool shady spot and plant it up if possible. Figs are resilient! Many times figs will shed some leaves as a response to being in a box, but will form new leaves within a few weeks. If you're plant dies due to shipping stress, I will refund after 30 days or situationally. Please send me photos and work with me on a resolution. Please take pictures of packaging and plant if it arrives damaged, be prepared to present this packaging to your local post office as part of their claims process.When it comes to striped figs that do not fruit with stripes: If you get sporadic striping its best to prune the solid portion out of the way, which will encourage the striped wood to prevail. Rigato Del Salento and Paratjal Rimada are good examples of this. If you get all solid fruits, take a picture of the fruit as it's growing on the whole plant and send it to me. If the plant has reverted completely, I will make it right. I can send a replacement or offer a refund. I don't expect anyone to pay a high dollar amount for a striped fig only to have it fruit solid green. Not many others will offer this guarantee, but I understand the beauty of striped figs and also know that they can be finicky. I want you to be happy with what you receive from me.
