4. Lemon Tree on a Frame

Asked by Kay - March 1, 2012

I have been given a lemon tree on a frame – it is thriving in my conservatory but I wonder if it would be better released from the frame work??

  • Normally fruit trees on a frame need some amount of pruning maintenance to remain espaliered (pruned flat against a wall or frame). This maintenance does not harm the tree, but can be time consuming, and annoying if you are not keen on the tree being like that in the first place.

    If you want to keep it espaliered, there will be no harm to the tree. Basically, just prune away any growth that is outside the frame shape.

    If you are not keen on the espalier shape, you can just let the tree resume its normal growth pattern and then use standard citrus pruning.
