I transplanted my figs from 20" planters to new 24" planters. While repotting I took the opportunity to root prune my figs. I took my hori hori knife and shaved 3" of soil and roots from the root ball. Then I placed the fig into the new container and back filled with more soil. Since I didn't do this in the fall my figs are off to a late start this spring since the root pruning slows them down a bit. That just means that I'll only have a second crop this year.
