When growing lemon trees in containers, the needs are very similar to lemon trees growing in the ground. The lemon trees will need good drainage, so make sure the pot has drainage holes.
Tending a small lemon tree in your home can be a delightful aromatic experience. While the thought of growing a tree inside a house or apartment may seem daunting to beginners, it is not as difficult as it may sound.Common name(s): Nimboo, Limboo.limeFlower colours: –Bloom time: annualMax reacahble height: 2 to 6 feet.Difficulty to grow:: Easy.
Planting and care
Citrus trees need a warm or mild climate zone. As long as frosts are not severe citrus trees will tolerate cool conditions. In cold zones grow only container versions, so when temperatures really plummet, bring them inside a greenhouse or enclosed porch.
Citrus need full sun, so place them in the sunniest part of your garden or balcony. Pots must have drainage holes in their base and be elevated slightly off the ground. Water potted citrus two to three times a week, and possibly daily in very hot weather. Apply citrus food in small amounts monthly from August to mid autumn.Sunlight: Full sun, Partial sunSoil: Citrus orchards flourish well in light soils with good drainage properties. Deep soils with pH range of 5.5 to 7.5 are considered ideal.Water: Water them regularly, about once a week in hot weather.Temperature: Citrus fruits grow best between a temperature range of 13 degree C to 37 degree C.Fertilizer: Feed them fertiliser often (at the drip line, rather than near the trunk).
