Q.Can We Prune Fig Tree in April

aznmfsvz added on April 13, 2011 | Answered

I could not prune my fig tree in winter. Can we do it now in April? The growth of leaves and fruit has already started. But there a few branches which need to be cut for proper air circulation and sunlight.

I would not prune it after leaves have appeared. It makes it more susceptible to disease if it is pruned after it comes out of dormancy.
