where can I learn or ask for help to prune potted 3 years old citrus trees?
|February through March are the recommended times to prune citrus trees, but I usually prune my citrus trees immediately after harvesting the fruit, which is December or January. This gives the tree an opportunity to resume growth and to develop flower buds for the next flowering/fruiting cycle. If losing some fruit is not important, go ahead and prune now. If you'd rather harvest a treeful of fruit, wait until after you have harvested to prune. You can safely remove up to one third of the canopy without harming the tree. Many commercial orchards shear their trees into short, round shapes to facilitate harvesting. Since I don't know how large your trees are, I don't know how much pruning you need to do. The above is just a guideline. Hope this information helps!|
