How to Prep Fig Tree for Winter
I have an Italian Honey (forget exact title) fig tree, 2nd year in the ground, that has grown like crazy this summer. I've read that I'm to cut it back and then wrap for the winter later this fall, but am not feeling secure with the instructions.
Any recommendations from experienced fig tree owners?
Also, earlier in the spring, a bird chipped away at the bark of one of my major center limbs. Seems to be surviving this injury. But is this common? Didn't see the bird, so no idea what kind.
Got about 15 large, plump, sweet figs, and dozens of babies on its 2nd round, but not sure they will mature in time.
