fig tree pruning
Hello I'd really appreciate some advice on what to do with this single stem fig that is just growing taller and taller.
It was grown from a cutting and is now around 12ft tall with no signs of shoots lower down - just a tall clear stem with a pompom head of leaves at the top. Obviously it is growing vigorously but is now starting to lean - I think the stem should just be pruned down to about 3 or 4 ft to encourage shoots to emerge at the base. Am I right or should it just be left? And if it does need severe pruning, when should it be done?
