I have an improved Meyer Lemon in a large pot on the patio, I would like to prune it for shape. It is about 10 years old, when is the best time of year to prune?

You can prune Meyer lemon trees at any time of the year. They can flower and set fruit throughout the year so you may sacrifice some lemons if any have set on the branches you want to remove. But aside from that, it's okay to prune your tree at virtually any time. Best wishes with your lemon tree!
