Fig Tree- invasive roots, keeping pruned to 5 ft-
Hi all. I planted a Desert King Fig tree this winter along with a bunch of other fruit trees with the goal of keeping them pruned as 5 ft. trees. The fig tree I am thinking as training it as a 5 ft. tall and maybe 7 ft. wide bush.
I keep happening to read everywhere that figs have very invasive roots. I am planning to prune it every year after the first (breba?) crop to keep it within bounds, so I will be losing the entire main crop.
My question is, under these circumstances are the roots still invasive when the tree is kept small?
