    Okay to prune and repot at same time?
    I need to tend to a neglected ficus tree that has many dead branches and branches growing in the wrong direction. It is also in need of repotting. Can I do this at the same time or do I need to wait a certain period between each?

    Pruning doesn't hurt most trees but select a dormant period such as winter when re potting pune excess rootes and folage. If this plant is large be generous
