Well yes and no FIona, Figs seem to survive quite happily round here
without being buried. Admittedley I'm not as far north as you (I'm assuming
you're in Fife) but they're fairly common round here, IIRC mentioned in
Richard Mabey's Flora Brittanica even.
https://goo.gl/maps/VYaY2M51kdWajZzA8 is a link to a decent one in
Rotherham by the River Don. And here's another not far from my house by the
River Sheaf: https://goo.gl/maps/Lkx2Kr6HQu6nQJzCA. This was actually cut
down by the EA a few years ago, but it's growing back quite happily.
BUt I never knew anybody went so far as burying them.
Bill.

Hi Bill,
You must be the only other person I know who has also read this book - I
enjoyed it very much, definitely worth a read and trying to bury a fig!

Subject: Arcane rituals? Burying Figs

Not sure what the Masons might get up to with Olive trees but I've
recently been reading a book entitled "the Island of Missing Trees," which
was not at all what I was expecting. Elif Shafak wrote it with the narrator
being a cutting from a Fig tree that was killed in the 1974 Greek/Turk
Cyprus confrontation.

Anyway I'd never heard of Fig trees being buried but apparently they are:

Strange book, covering a topic about which I know nothing, but I have to
say I enjoyed it. Some of you might as well.

Bill.
