Fig Pruning

John Farrell added on June 6, 2011 | Answered

Have an old overgrown fig tree in our garden, which for the past few years has produced a crop of small green figs that fall off at about 3 to 4 centimetre size. I need to prune this tree but require some guidence from an expert on how to go about pruning. This tree gets enough water. Please assist. Many thanks, John Farrell

    Fig pruning is basically opening the tree up so that weak branches and crossing branches are removed, which allows more airflow and light get into the tree. This article will help:
