propagating fig tree
I'm extremely new growing fig trees, in fact this is my first attempt. My mom has an outstanding Desert King in her yard that's she's had for about 15 years. A few months back she saw a couple branches growing out near the base of the tree which were dipping down to the ground. She covered up the portions that were touching the ground with dirt. They ended up growing some roots where she had them buried. She dug them up, cut them below the roots and gave them to me to plant as separate trees. Unfortunately, before she had done that, she had already pruned those branches back. So what I have is two trees that are basically chopped off at the top. They're about 3 feet tall and 1/2 inch in diameter. My question is, is there a way to train these to grow into a "tree" instead of a "bush", or am I going to be stuck with a bush?
