Important Lemon Tree Info
Lemon trees are vulnerable to cold temperatures. They’ll need special protection from frost and northern winds. Placement is key for this purpose and a screen of greenery or a nearby structure will come in handy.
Full sunlight is a must for lemon trees. Partial or indirect sunlight will result in stunted growth instead of a flourishing, healthy specimen.
Another tip for the healthiest possible lemon trees is to provide soil that drains well and is somewhat acidic.
You’ll need to schedule weekly watering for your lemon tree.
Lemon trees can be pruned as needed to keep the desired shape and height.
In-Ground Planting Steps
- Dig a hole slightly shorter than the height of the root ball.
- Set the tree in the hole and fill in the soil with consistent tamping down throughout the fill process.
- Water thoroughly.
- Install mulch.
Container-Bound Lemon Trees
Lemon trees are easily grown in a container as a houseplant or placed upon a patio. The container will generally limit growth to between 3 and 5 feet when kept indoors. The soil should still be kept moist, drained, and fertilized, and the indoor temperatures should remain around 70 degrees during daytime hours and in the 50’s during the night.
Light is of particular interest when lemon trees are kept indoors. With the sunny days of Florida, this element isn’t usually an issue, but during the winter, you might need to use lighting specifically designed for growing houseplants. You can also keep the container on wheels and transport it to the patio on warm, sunny days, which will also increase the likelihood for fruit-bearing since pollination is part of the process.
