I'm new to this and need some advice on something... probably will make you roll your eyes.
1. Can I safely cut the little branches growing out of the bottom of my fig trees?
2. Can I lop off the long spindly main trunks about 1/3 of the way up without killing the fig? I guess I would like to reshape this tree but am not sure how to go about it safely. BTW... I received it like this.
Here are some pics. I included a pic of my smaller one with figs just to share. Hopefully, I won't mess it up and will have figs later this summer. I will be putting these potted figs in the ground according to the instructions in another post.
