I had to wait for approx. 2 weeks for the plant to arrive, but it was worth the wait. The plant arrived in a very good condition, well packaged and had new shoots from the tree. Once out of the box and in the sunny spot in our garden, the shoots are growing - and growing really fast. So far, so good...looking forward to eat my first home-grown fig this autumn!
