West Sussex, United Kingdom
Two questions please!
1) 4 months ago I got some advice about caring for the natural hedge that I planted. It's done very well but I want to encourage it to thicken at the base. What is the right time of the year to cut it down a bit, and how low should I cut it?
2) My fig is growing beautifully against a South facing shed wall. Very early on I had 4 gorgeous figs, then I had around 30 none of which have ripened. They're still on the plant. What did I do wrong and how can I improve things next year?
Thanks in advance, Maddy.
