The lemon tree seedlings didn't survive the transition to Sask weather except the biggest one, which was maybe 16 inches high and also got frozen in the greenhouse. However, the various branches and stem stayed green so I took off all the leaves and kept it watered...and it has come back like gangbusters but almost entirely from soil level. So now instead of a little tree it looks like some sort of hedge in the making. Should I thin any of the stems out? They are all growing pretty much straight up, no branching so far at all, the longest about 7 inches or so. It's looking really happy (the weather has turned to the upper 20sC) so I don't want to do anything to damage it.

Any way to encourage them to develop their own roots? I hate to waste any, the three main ones are already about 8 inches tall, can't determine what the situation is with the thick cluster of leaves at soil level, but everything looking lush and happy! I don't know, though, if the stems are big enough crosswise to try air layering..
