Good afternoon. Part of a limb (picture attached) broke on my Meyer Lemon tree (approximately 4 years old -given to me by a friend). This is the second year that it has produced lemons (22; last year 6 lemons). I would like to root the limb and wonder if I can leave it this size and do I have to remove the leaves -or can I leave them on; dip the limb in Rootone and put in potting soil to root? This picture shows the broken limb and it measures 10-1/2" from tip to the bottom of the limb.

Thank you very much!
Pat

Maybe this article will help:

I've never tried it so I can't tell you if this actually works. I would suggest you not let your little lemon produce so heavily until the tree is strong enough to support the weight.
