Pruning/Repotting Dwarf Meyer Lemon
I have a dwarf meyer lemon tree in a big container (not sure how many gallons). it has stayed relatively small since i bought it 2 years ago. it had a lot of blossoms this year, so i was hoping for a lot of lemons, but all but one fell off. not sure why this happened, but the tree only has one lemon at present.
anyway, im moving at the end of july and my question is this: how can i prune/repot this tree to be able to transfer it to zone 6a? is it too late in the summer to prune? if i moved it to a smaller container, could i prune the roots?
i'm not worried about losing the sole lemon, i just would like to be able to move it without killing it. ever since it was overwintered last year, it has had blotchy, unhealthy looking leaves, so i think it might appreciate a good prune, but i dont want to kill it.
any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
