I Can Barely Contain My Excitement!

Back in January, I received an email from Logee's about a sale they were having.  Upon the amazing tropical plants that they sell, one of them was on sale, that I have been drooling over for awhile.  It was their "Petite Negra" fig, a dwarf fig tree that is perfect for containers.  I ordered one for an April delivery in the spring.  Today, I got this in the mail!
I can't even explain how happy I was to rip this box open to see what the tree looked like.  I was half expecting a lifeless live plant, I always get worried about buying live plants that are mailed.  Logee's did a fantastic job with packing the plant, it was so nicely packed with care!
After unwrapping the paper, I pulled out the plant.  Behold, look at this beauty!  So healthy and cute!  This plant is in a 4 inch pot.  It was so perfect, I almost thought it was fake!
I have the perfect pot that I re-potted it in.  Remember this one that I got for a steal? Don't you think it's adorable?  It's going to take a few days for the leaves to uncurl, but I am already in love!  What recent buys are you excited about?


  1. It looks great! How neat to have a fig tree, I can't wait to see how it does for you.

  2. What a gorgeous looking plant and it looks great in the pot you have! Good luck with it and enjoy!

  3. That's a good looking mail order plant.

  4. That's a nice leafy plant that they mailed! I'm surprised too! Good for you!

  5. I can't believe something that healthy looking arrived in the mail! Lucky you - enjoy.

  6. Oh! Fantastic!!!! It is so darn cute! Fig trees truly are gifts that just keep on giving...and giving!

    We lucked out last year and moved into an apartment that just happened to have really well-established fig trees growing (in the ground - in Brooklyn! One is nearly 50 years old!)

    They are just incredible - tasty, and the trees and foliage are gorgeous. Glad you got your hands on one! Keep us posted on how it's doing!

  7. I actually have some starts to a rudbeckia 'Goldquell' or something like that. The story about them is on the post I put up this evening. I've been admiring the tall yellow blooms growing in the curb area of a busy street for a long time, and last week, I went to the door and asked for a clump. I am so tickled to have that plant!

    Your fig is a cutie!

  8. ooh, I'm really excited for you! I also would LOVe to have a fig tree. I'm going to live vicariously through you and see if it's something I can swing too!

  9. AH! can't wait to get my orange tree!!! :D


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
