Last year, I purchased for myself White Marseilles fig plants, banana dwarf tree plants, and a variety of seeds–including every type of strawberry seed they had available! I’m new at gardening, but had great success with both the seeds and the plants. I love that I can bring the fig and dwarf banana trees indoors in the colder months. Having plants inside your home or office helps to cleanse the air, and the fruit these trees will bear make it extra special.
