Hi Worth

No fertilizer at all on the fig and I prune it only to control size. It grows to about 8' x 8' in a single season. Pruning is cutting it back by 2/3 on the longest pranches and shorter branches by about 1/4. It seems very healthy and makes giant leaves but never produces even one fig bud at a leaf node. This season I tried pruning to 6 nodes to stimulate branching and production to no success. Any other suggestions?

Thanks
