I have a dwarf lemon/lime grafted onto one rootstock that is 18 months old and just over five feet in height. I don’t want it to get much higher than six feet. When and how should I prune? Do I take out whole branches or trim back all over and should this be done regularly, a little at a time, or take more but less often?

Your original answer didn’t cover this part of my question. Also you talked about ‘scarifying’ the fruit. i thought this was done to a seed to help with germination. Can you explain further.

Hi Carol, Ensure both varieties are kept to similar size, predominantly prune straight after flowering, but some pruning will need to be done throughout the year to ensure one doesn’t take over and the plant doesn’t get too big (might have to sacrifice some fruit in this case.

Thanks the Palmers Team
