So after only a few weeks the fig buds have started to emerge. These figs got a complete defoliation and in some cases all branches were removed.
I’ve taken these macro shots of the tiniest buds breaking through to give another view of what is going on. Most of these buds are around 2mm in size.
I get a real buzz when I see the buds for the first time. A sense of relief that the tree has survived this aggressive defoliation and will soon be thriving with new leaves.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do
