Orange tree care
I bought my first orange tree 2 years ago. I know very little about orange trees, but tried to read up on them. Part of the problem is that I can't find much information for the climate that I live in. Sunny everyday and up to 120 F in the summer.
I believe that I have found the correct amount of water to give it because it appears to be growing quicker. The problem ( or at least I think that it is a problem) is that the tree grows out and not up. Every time a new limb starts to grow upwards, the leaves come out and bend it over to the side. I really want to trim it so that the new shoots will grow off of a thicker limb and not bend over, but I have read that you should not trim them. Is this normal?
I would really like to hear advise from someone with experience because I hear all sorts of advice from people that do not have orange trees. NOTE: I do know that orange trees will grow in this area.
