Welp dimitri, can’t say that advice, as given to me, was bad or amusing. I water my potted lemons weekly until there’s >50% by volume in leachate. Also, toss every discarded produce, bread, rice, coffee grounds, etc. into a tumbler along with all the vegetation from my property. Space isn’t an issue, but I wouldn’t claim to be managing it properly. Hence, tumbler. Actually, two. One 30gal retail unit that finally succumbed to our harsh climate that was to be replaced with a 55gal custom diy special. This season saw both used and the larger is cooling off with a week to go. Good timing because the non-tumbling tumbler is at capacity.
Not really bad advice received from “someone,” but after searching for pruning info, online mostly, all that could be found was to give it a snip in early spring and another mid-summer for wisteria. Ya, amusing theory. Only if I feel like taking half the day for one espaliered vine. In practice, more like once monthly, minimum, with Dec-Feb off. If it was cut back only twice a year it would be impossible to enter the house through the front door!
