  • Advice needed

    I bought this violette de Bordeaux and it was already two main trunks. I am training my other trees to be single leader. Do I keep it as a double or cut one off? Suggestions welcome. Thanks

    Why not Airlayer one branch and have a extra tree or use it for trade material?

        I also like just on leader, it also helps me see that bottom to make sure their is not a snake 🐍.. Fig trees have huge leaves and when we have a bunch of branches it covers a lot at ground level and makes me scared to reach inside to get a fig .. my trees are small but I notice that on some of the pictures they post here in the forum.

            If you want a second tree, airlayer the extra trunk off. If not and don't have anyone to take it off your hands, just wait until it goes dormant and remove it when you do your pruning.

            Trunk air layer.

            Large plant/tree sells for more and VDB is as many consider, a staple of one's collection.

            Or trade bait? Either one is large enough grow new branches (green wood) to be able to fruit come spring/summertime.

              Some just like to grow multiple trunks here if in ground, but I agree with all the above.
