I intend to have a multi-fig variety tree-shrub.
I've seen the popular video online which presents a 3-in-1 pleached fig tree. If all three died to the ground, you could re-pleach; if 1 or 2 of the 3 survived you'd have dead wood wrapped-up in the mix.
In any case, what about planting say 5 or 7 fig varieties - each placed so that they form a circle just a few inches apart. Then they would each expand until all trunks will fuse into a single trunk from which all the varieties would radiate for just a portion each?
How does this sound?
