Growing Lemons – How To Grow A Lemon Tree
Lemon trees are one of the most popular types of houseplants. They’re easy to care for and they have a wide variety of uses.
You can use them as a houseplant or you can keep them outside in your yard or even in the garden. There’s no limit to what kind of plants you could plant inside your home!
If you want to grow lemons, then here are some tips on how to do so:
1) Get Rid Of All Your Other Plants First!
It’s very important that before you start any new project like growing a lemon tree, that all your other plants are completely removed. If not, then you’ll end up with a mess when it comes time to transplant your new lemon tree into its permanent location.
2) Choose a Good Location For Your New Plant!
You need to choose a good place where you can get sunlight. This will make sure that your new lemon tree doesn’t suffer from sunburn.
Also, don’t forget to provide plenty of water and fertilizer. (See #3 below.)
3) Water And Fertilize Your New Lemon Tree!
Watering your new lemon tree is pretty simple. You can do this by watering the entire soil area.
The key is to avoid getting the plant itself wet because this could cause mold or mildew to grow.
As far as feeding your new plant, there are special plant foods that you can buy from most garden centers that are specifically designed for plants such as lemon trees. Follow the instructions on the package for the best results.
4) Watch For Signs Of Disease!
