citrus hedge; want low-hanging fruit!
buying 3 orange trees (semi dwarf?) to serve dual purpose -
partial screening from sidewalk,street, and fruit to eat. How do we get the trees to branch low and full almost to the ground, like the commercial orchards in the Central Valley?
Our front yard is raised and smallish - already have a kumquat, dwarf lemon, and fig tree - all behind a wall of rose bushes, which discourages passersby. We'd be looking at these trees from a new front deck. Is it just a matter of pruning, or should we look for specific varieties? We want to keep them relatively short so they don't completely block out sun from the rest of the trees/plants, etc. Thanks!
