Can someone in the know tell me if a citrus tree responds to a severe pruning by producing more / larger thorns? I have a grafted Lisbon lemon that I have grown in a pot for 15 years. This spring I gave it an especially hard pruning and now there are many more nasty thorns than in the past. It would seem like a natural reaction of a plant to increased grazing or pruning.
