CUT­TING BACK

Homes+ (Australia) - - MY BACKYARD -

Citrus tree branches can some­times grow too close to the ground, with low-ly­ing branches re­duc­ing air­flow and adding to the like­li­hood of col­lar rot. If this is hap­pen­ing, up­lift the crown by re­mov­ing some of the lower branches in win­ter. No prun­ing is nec­es­sary aside from re­mov­ing suck­ers (shoots sprout­ing be­low the graft) and in the case that your citrus plant is out­grow­ing its space.
