Apricot Trees
Q.

When do I prune fig, olive, apricot and pomegranate trees in Southern Arizona?

Zone Southern Arizona | Soupbone added on February 22, 2015 | Answered

I just moved to Southern Arizona and have apricot, fig, olive and pomegranate trees that the previous owner got good yields from. When is the best time to prune these? It is February now, but I assume the dormancy period is different here. Also, how often should I water?

The best advice I can give you, as a new resident of Arizona, is to visit the nearest office of the County Extension Service, to get all the information you can on gardening in your area. This link will help you locate your local office:

Other than this, getting the best out of these different trees requires more than knowing when to prune. Here are articles on each of these plants:
