Re: Re: fig planting

from dave lawrence

Cheers kathy advise is well appreciated any advise on root pruning time scale.
I am told the fig is only about 3>4 foot in height atm so thinking of root pruning say first one in afew years ?And im guessing this proceedure just means cutting through say afew inches in from the perimeter of the barrel planter and remove old and renew soil and compost!And would there be a best time to do this meaning in the spring time or after fruits are harvested. thanks in advance:)
