How do you prune a fig tree?
Posted by Dobies Staff on 01 August 2014 12:47 PM

Established fig trees are pruned in June by pinching back all young shoots to 4 or 5 leaves to promote fruiting shoots to form. In spring tidy up both fan and bush trained plants by removing shoots killed by frost. Thinning may be necessary by removing some of the old wood. On fan trained plants remove buds which are pointing directly inwards or away from the wall.
