My calamondin tree had a tough winter due to dramatic changes in temperature. Because of this, a lot of leaves fell off and some branches died. Luckily, I managed to save it although I think I have incorrectly pruned. There has been new leaf growth recently but the area that died shows no sign of growth. This time last year it was in flower. Please can you advise if there is anything I can do to help it spring back?

With all circus, when a cane dies its dead, it will not revive. Prune it back (slowly) and see if you find viable pithy flesh. If you do stop. if you don;t cut it all the way off. Citrus have a code of ethics all their own. I have 2 Kalamannsi (what you call Calamondin) in my yard, both almost 20 ft tall. They are carefree. But the Kaffir Lime I have in my greenhouse? FINICKY
