Post subject:  Ficus help.

I have had a grafted Ficus thrust upon me, I found it hard to say no.
It's healthy but in a pot of compost. I have it outside for the moment which it seems to like (I will bring it into the greenhouse when the weather drops.
I'm going to re-pot it now, a kind of slip pot.
What I want to know is, if I want to wire it do I just pull the outside branches down to open up the crown a little
any advice greatly accepted
Regards
C

I don't know ficus so can't really comment although what you suggest seems reasonable, but those who do know ficus will want to see pictures.

Depends on species of ficus? As Gary says a photo would help us.
It will need protection during Winter

I have a ficus Retusa. It comes indoors at the end of September on the sunniest window sill I have. Goes back outside early May. I repot mine anytime of the year every couple of years. Wire whenever but it can cut in quite quickly. I don't think my species would enjoy the winter in a greenhouse though. Hope this helps.
