Quick question. We have a fig tree that's still producing fruit. I was wondering when I can prune it. It's getting bigger and bigger every year! I want to cut it down in height as well as width. Any suggestions on how to do so. If I prune it, does that mean I will not get fruit next year? We give these figs away to so many people, I don't want to disappoint the masses when we have no fruit next year! -- Thanks, Jackie

Hi, Jackie.

Prune the tree after it has lost its leaves and gone dormant, before wrapping it if you do so for winter protection. No worries about next year's fruit; it won't be affected and your masses won't be disappointed.
