Prune your citrus trees immediately after you've harvested the fruit and before they begin to flower. Exactly when depends upon the weather, and when new growth begins. If you prune after they have flowered you'll sacrifice some of the fruit set so timing is important. You can plant a potted citrus tree now, or anytime this spring. Hope you have a great harvest!
