I am trying to get them into a tree shape, so each spring I prune out everything going in toward the center, or crossing, or anything lower than the canopy I'm trying to make.
I took the trimmings and made heel cuts, dipped them in rooting hormone and firmed them into flats with moist pro-mix. I don't have any plastic around which is clear. Should I use a white plastic bag to put over the entire flats? Is this a futile attempt at something which will not become plants?
There is virtually nobody around selling citrus. It cannot be shipped here in Texas for some reason. At least that's what I have been told so it may not be true. I would still like to make gallon sized plants with these cuttings and eventually sell them locally to the better garden centers which have more than impatiens and petunias.
Any experience out there?
