First Citrus Tree...
First, let me say I have been consulting these forums for over a year now for gardening advice. Thank you all for sharing so much experience and knowledge! I might have killed all my plants by now if not for all of you.
Now, for a favor. I've searched and searched, but can't come up with a good answer... I purchased my first citrus (a dwarf Meyer lemon) about a month ago from Four Winds. It's just a one year old plant, but I bare-rooted it and planted it in Al's 5-1-1 mix. It's been doing beautifully. Lots of new leaf buds and even FLOWER BUDS! This totally surprised me, and brings me to my question.
Should I let my one year old tree flower? It's much too small to produce fruit and my gut is telling me to chop those buds off so the plant can focus on root growth and getting big and strong.
Thoughts? And advice would be appreciated.
