This weekend it's time to give your citrus a health check, stay listening for tips or to be in the draw for McGregor's Pruning Shears
Citrus trees are easy to grow and even the smallest garden has room for a lemon tree, but they do like a little care and attention from time to time.
Give your trees the once over - Prune any damaged or dead branches. Citrus wood is soft and susceptible to borer so seal all cuts with pruning paste to reduce access to the tree.
