Cutting back celeste
Hi, Went to the nursery to buy my first fig and they only sell ones about 4 ft. tall in a 5 gallon bucket and it is trimmed like a tree. One trunk about 1 inch in diameter. They told me I need a big tree like theses and to chop off the top and this is the only way to have figs here because the freeze kills the bushes. I just left confused. Is this correct? Again Im very new to this so I really appreciate the help! I live east of Dallas zone 8 if that helps.
