While pruning the last couple of days I saw some things to do that I wanted to bring to your attention.

Q. I purchased a lovely Meyer Lemon tree in a one gallon pot in middle of the spring. It already had 6 lemons on it. I have the original fruit, have new fruit growing, and still am getting blossoms. Should I transplant it now into a larger pot or wait until after the fruit ripens and is used?
Q. I'm setting up some raised beds for planting this spring and wondered about water evaporation from the soil. Since water retention in the soils here in Vegas is an issue due to the heat would it make sense to put a liner in the beds to help keep the moisture from draining out so quickly?
Q. Our lemon tree shows damage after our recent very cold spell. Some of the leaves are dry and dropping. Is there anything we can do to assist the tree?
In other words, more trees are coming up around the main tree. Can I transplant the pups to a new area and how do I do that. Thanks for your help.
