Young Lemon Tree

17 years ago

I planted a 2yr old (I think! can't find the tag!) Meyer Lemon Tree in March/April this year. Seems to like where it is as it's grown well over winter and has now produced a small spray(?) of flowers. I read somewhere that you should remove the flowers in the first and/or second year it's in the ground, I would presume to encourage growth rather than it putting it's limited resources into fruiting.

My neighbour however, disagrees with this and says it should be left to 'do it's own thing' as long as it's happy and healthy. Any opinions? I just want to do what's best for Louie :)).
