Anyone growing a lemon tree this year? If so plz share your advice. Oh, & don't forget the garlic!
Oh, I WISH!
We had a dwarf citrus tree, with oranges, lemons, and limes. Never did get a lemon...just a lime and an orange.
I love lemons!
This is my first year growing a lemon tree, I have a Bears lime tree also. Just waiting for that first glass of fresh made juice!
YES, lemon trees can be grown in a container for the indoors! Here's a link which speaks of just that.
Quoting amerslynn:I would love to have a lemon tree. You can grow them inside? My dd would love it.
ohhh yummmmmmm i grew once years ago! had to keep it inside
I picked up a Meyer Lemon Tree for the patio, this will be my first. As long as it is kept trimmed etc it will do fine in a container. They prefer a citric soil base & fertilizer for citric plants. The container needs to have plenty of room to allow for root growth. As wide as it is deep is preferred.
**If planting in a container, remember to use "potting" soil for citrus plants opposed to regular citrus/garden soil.
Over time, I plan to put mine in the ground; but that may take years to happen, lol. Depending upon the type.... they can grow anywhere from 4-8 ft tall. They also are more bushy trees.
If ya plan to keep it inside, then you can keep it trimmed to your own taste. It should/will still produce lemons!
Tip: during the day, either have it by a window OR place it outside to get sunlight, to help growth. (a rolling base will help to cart it outside & in).
I've got blossoms on mine yah!! They smell sooo good. I broke down & made my last batch of store bought juice he he....waiting......
I found a good article about garlic for the lemon tree & why.
