Q.Lemon Tree

Anonymous added on January 24, 2014 | Answered

I have a lemon tree that I started from a seed. It is about three and a half inches tall and it’s just growing straight up in the air without anything branching from the sides. If I prune it from the bottom, will it start branching out? Or prune it from the top and it will start forming branches? Please advise.

You can normally encourage branching by snipping out the top bud, which gives the side buds a better chance to grow.
