Justification Questioned




Lemons need a minimum temperature of around 7°C, so they are not hardy year-round in temperate climates, but become hardier as they mature.[1] Citrus require minimal pruning by trimming overcrowded branches, with the tallest branch cut back to encourage bushy growth. Throughout summer, pinching back tips of the most vigorous growth assures more abundant canopy development. As mature plants may produce unwanted, fast-growing shoots called ‘water shoots,’ these are removed from the main branches at the bottom or middle of the plant.
