How do I take care of my fig bush in the spring? The bush was covered in the fall and now I have uncovered it. The branches are sticking out but are dead (I believe). Do I cut them all the way down? I know the new shots come from the bottom of the bush. Last year I cut them all the way down and most of the figs were late and I lost a lot of the figs. Can you help me?
