Lemon (citrus) trees
When is the best time to prune citrus trees? Mine always either have flowers or fruit on them. I don't know when I should clean them up?

The lemon should have some sort of "dormant" period when it shouldn't have flowers or fruit on them. If this is indoors, and has a constant environment then I understand the constant flowering. If it is outdoors, then there will be time of year that it is not flowering.
If this is an indoor tree then prune when the tree is showing the least amount of activity. You can prune any suckers from the base at any time.
