Fig trees .. I tried my best to prune them


Fig trees .. I tried my best to prune them (fig)

15 Feb 2011
I wanted to cut off the top bits of the tree on the right too, but I couldn't, even with a ladder.. We need a longer one! Or maybe I should just cut it from somewhere lower I can reach!

You are clever, Clarice. Maybe I shouldn't go any higher!

Yes Princess Y, our trees produce big figs (I'll post a photo for you later). We have several trees, and all grew too high to reach. The fallen fruits make a big mess and attract dangerous-looking wasps. A bit of a nuisance.

I can remember when I was in South Africa all the figs falling and the same thing, I thought they smelt awful when the were splattered on the ground,

You are right, the smell is horrible!! And when you step on them, which I often do by accident, the fruits stick on your shoes. Very unpleasant.
