Q.Inside Orange Tree – Pruning

Zone 03582 | Anonymous added on March 29, 2020 | Answered

I have a small tree that has taken off this spring and they limbs/branches are too thin to carry fruit. I do have 1 blossom. 🙂 How far should I go to give my little tree strength in its stocks and limbs?

Thank you
