I have small fig tree in a large pot. Do I need to prune it? This is his second year.

I have one in a large pot too. Wait until it comes into leaf and then you can see any dead bits, cut these off. I seem to get a few dead 'snags' each year. Other than that I don't think you need to prune unless it's outgrowing the space.
Thank you Mrs G. It has some dead bits on the ends but I wasn't sure if I need to cut them of now are wait until in leaf.
I would only wait because you don't want to cut it before a frost as these bits will be offering some protection. If you know you've had your last frost then go for it,
