thinning fruit and pruning a branch, that Meyer lemon
I posted earlier about my Meyer lemon blossoming - well there are two tiny lemons on one little branch, and another with loads of buds. The lemons are on such a tiny little branch - about the thickness of a six strand cotton embroidery floss. Should I take off one of them?
Also, there is a long branch, no fruiting or blooming evidence, just a 3 foot branch and leaves. It is almost twice as long as the other branches which are 18" to 2 feet; at about 18", it has a secondary branch about 4" long with nice healthy little leaves. My "design eye" says prune it down to that new branch, so that the overall shape is consistent. What do you all think?
