Look at my Lemon tree - Do I keep loving it or leave it?
I recently purchased a house that happened to have a lemon tree growing in the back corner of the yard. When I decided to finally get stuck into the garden, I hacked away at a few of the lower branches (as per advice received from friends). You can see there is almost a "double stump". Since doing so, I have been doing a bit of research into caring for your lemon tree and how to remove "suckers" but I am having trouble identifying them on my tree (if they are even there at all). See the pic below. Are these green shoots growing from the trunks the suckers in question? Do I hack these off also? Do I hack the whole thing down to the stump?? Or is my tree at the point of no return? I have only seen one lemon on the tree since I moved in in April this year, so I am not sure if its the time of year or if its the health of the tree. Would really appreciate any advice for a newbie in the garden!
