Meyer Lemon/Mexican Lime Espalier
Anyone ever done this in Zone 8, or at all? I have 2 large south-facing, protected brick areas, and I'm thinking these 2 trees would be perfect. I already have them and dread bringing them in for winter, hate keeping up with them in pots, etc.
I think they're a good size for not colliding with the eaves of the house. I've never done this before, and I cannot find an espalier board. Should I allow them to establish for several weeks before pruning, or go an entire season or what? I definitely don't want to kill them, but they both seem to be tough plants.
