Hello, is it possible to purchase fig cuttings online? There's plenty on ebay at the moment from malta, USA etc and i wanted to know if anyone else has had luck buying them and having them come here.
I'm in Victoria if that helps.

You can order them, but you won't get them, they'll all be confiscated at the border, not allowed in.

It helps a lot. I have collected lots of fig cuttings in Melbourne over the years. Screw up your courage, go and knock on the door of a house with a fig tree you like the look of and ask for a cutting.
I've never had any trouble except once at a Salvation Army site where everyone was too frightened to agree in case "e;the Major"e; objected. Need I add, that when we located the Major, he was totally cooperative?
People love their fig trees and are proud to let you have a piece.

Thank you all for the responses. Manfred, I was wondering during winter if it'd be possible to get some cuttings of figs to graft. May I ask, what varieties have you collected? Also, I live in a place where almost nobody has fig trees on our street.

Thank you

I only have one black and one white variety left because I can't give figs as much water as they'd like, but I would be pleased to send you some cuttings around about April. I also pass a few fig trees on my annual migration north and could get some cuttings from those, but I can't help you with the varieties.
I think my black one is "e;Brown Turkey"e; but I wouldn't swear to it. It is a great producer because it is on the downside of a leaky dam and the birds leave me lots of second crop figs because it produces so well. Shopping bags full of golf-ball plus sized figs, all about the same size. Not the first crop though. That will be all gone by the end of next week, and they wouldn't be ripe until about a week after that. The white one is small, sweet and prolific and its parent was growing in the grounds of the old Albion Explosives Factory at Deer Park.
Send me an email to "e;listingdotmanfredatgmaildotcom"e; and I will follow up later. (Use . and @ where I've written those to fool auto-email-trollers.)

Don't forget gumtree! You could place a wanted ad on there, especially if you are after a specific variety, and willing to pay a few bucks
