Most figs rarely produce viable seeds, so you're usually better off looking for cuttings or second year trees. Many nurseries selling fig trees are either done shipping for the season, or they are already sold out. Try Jenè's Tropicals in St. Petersburg, FL., ( Click on the link for Tropical Fruits or call: 727-344-1668. They sell Brown Turkey Fig trees in 3-gallon pots and ship worldwide. If that doesn't work out for you, I would try and find someone in the neighborhood that would give you a cutting or try to get on a local nursery's list for next year. When searching for Grancy Grey Beard tree seeds, you may also find them listed as White Fringe tree or Old Man's Beard. The seeds form on blue clusters in the fall (male trees produce more flowers and are more fragrant). Try ( Click on the link for the TreeHelp Store and then the Seeds link. The Grancy seeds are listed under Old Man's Beard or Fringe Tree.

It talkes a long time to get figs from a small 2 foot tree. I think this is one area you need to break down and buy a young tree
