Attributes of Lemon Trees That Growers Need to Know:

Steps to Plant Your Lemon Tree Purchase
Step One – Identify the spot for planting and dig a hole, making sure that it’s slightly less deep than the root ball’s height.
Step Two – When setting the tree, tamp the backfilled dirt regularly.
Step Three – Provide water to the point of saturation.
Step Four – Apply mulch to protect from evaporation, temperature extremes, and damage.
In-Ground Lemon Tree or Container Bound Lemon Tree?
Those with smaller yards or apartment dwellers might be surprised to find that they too can grow lemon trees. Inside, as a houseplant, or outside, on the patio, lemon trees can grow in multiple environments. While the different environment will keep the tree limited to 3-5 feet of maximum height, they will survive. Moisture and temperature still matter. Keep the soil wet but not saturated, and set the thermostat up to the 70s during the day and bump it down to the 50s at night. This situation would require light specially designed for growing plants indoors and would benefit from wheeled containers for easy transport to and from the patio.
