Meyer Lemon - How do you prune??
We have a Meyer Lemon which is planted in the ground -- about 2 to 2-1/2 years old. Some of the branches have gone wild -- excessive growth spurt. I assume it is safe to trim these down to be more in line with the other branches of the trees. There are lemons on the tree - I don't know if any are on those long limbs or not. Is it okay to prune in July in Florida or should I wait to a certain time of the year. Also, do I need to thin out any of the interior limbs? Seems like people with fruit trees up north had to prune a certain way, so I'm trying to find out what you do to Meyer Lemon trees. Thanks for your help.
