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

Good info!  Maybe we should start a sticky of Fig tree tips.  It would be a good place to get quick info for better success.
