Did you know this
« on: August 15, 2018, 12:14:43 AM »
Steve here,


Did you know it got so hot in the south that most fig tree brund their leaves and fall off the tree and also stopped some growth
but you have them growing new leaves now and starting to grow again. Yea !!!


Never pinch off the growth bar on top when it is supper hot because the tree need all it got to deal with the heat , only  do it very early in spring.


what you think about that!  :o

I never liked to top any of my plants whether itís a pepper plant or a fig tree.  Now that I read this, I will never pinch nor top my plants. 

Thanks Steve

I do top pepper plants and some other plants as well. It encourages branching and more fruit,

I have heard on both sides regarding pinching or not. So fo purposes of shaping, so you would have a very low branching tree (which shades the trunk in AZ from sunburn) do you recommend dormant tree trimming vs pinching?

That's exactly what happened to mine Steve, I always wondered why they do that, so how do we stopped it foe. Next year? Do I put them in drip irrigation  ?
