HI MY DWARF LEMON TREE WHICH LOST A LOT OF ITS LEAVES.

THE LEMON IS ABOUT 2 YEARS OLD AND PLANTED IN A POT AND LOOKED QUITE HEALTHY UNTIL LAST WEEK IN THE STRONG WIND IT LOST THE LEAVES ON THE STEMS BUT RETAINED THE LEAVES ON THE END OF THE STEMS AND THE LEMONS. I WAS WONDERING IF I SHOULD CUT IT BACK,IF SO,BY HOW MUCH.
