5' potted Celeste whip - prune it to 3' ?
Hello fig forum,
A week ago, I planted in our garden a potted Celeste fig in Long Island, NY bought from Hick's Nursery - beautiful plant. It is five feet tall with two whip branches (about 3/4 diameter) nicely spaced. I have been reading and going in circles about whether or not to cut it in half (maybe use the top to start some more). I read that you are not supposed to cut celeste back but the instructions are not clear, so I come to you all for guidance. Thanks for your help.
