Fig tree over grown

Posted: 04/04/2017 at 08:23
hi did it produce more growth/ fruit as a result? this one only had one fig last season. so wondering if cutting back will help
Sussexsun says:

I would cut out about half of the thick branches and prune the top branches to a more manageable height. I did the same to my own fig tree earlier this year and it looks a lot better now and won't block so much sun when the leaves come in.

See original post

hi, have this fig tree that is now very high and ends up creating a lot of shade. Dont want to remove but wondering if can just simply cut the branches down to top of fence level?  to ensure still lets light in.?

hi there, have a few photos i have collected and wanted to know what the plant /tree is hoping you lovely experts can help. 

1. is a willow tree but not sure which type

2  another tree. Dont know what it is has red leaves

3. very pretty weed spreading itself across garden purple flowers.

4. woody rooted plant with yellow carnation looking flowers on a long green stem.

5. think its a weed/wild ground cover with yellow flowers 

does anyone know what this plant is?

Yes it is a euphorbia. Its stem contains latex and this can burn the skin. so important to keep children and pets away from and needs to be handled with gloves. stem must be broken for you to come into contact with latex. Some people are allergic to so possible cause.?

i just learnt of this recently. should really be a sign up/ warning. Someone i know has burns on skin as a result of this plant but i see them in all the local parks.
