Dwarf Vs Pruning
Instead of grafting onto a dwarf variety to gain dwarfism can I keep my fig trees dwarf by pruning alone? (Starting growth by seed) I don't really don't want to graft my fig tree? Many thanks

This will be a complicated task that will require some bonsai work.
You can do some preparation, as long as the tree is still very small. You will have to treat it as a bonsai, and it won't fruit to its potential, although it may stay alive for several years. Just make sure to follow proper bonsai technique.
