My citrus tree (Louisiana sweet orange) that I planted last year is blooming like crazy. My dad told me that you’re not supposed to let citrus trees bear fruit the first year, so I pruned the buds before they could blossom. This year, I’m hoping to get an orange or two. I’m not sure if this tip works, but he’s got a burgeoning citrus grove, and a grapefruit tree that produces hundred of grapefruits every winter, so I figured it was worth a try.
Has anyone heard this tip before? Does it work?
