Convert Lemon to Tree or Shape Bush


katy3 added on October 13, 2015 | Answered

I have a lemon bush that does bear some lemons and has bad thorns! Probably about 8 years old, transplanted about 6 years ago. This year its limbs have grown fast and reach about 7' tall. Must do something to control its size. Should I try to make a tree of it, or just prune and shape it to keep as a bush?
