Semi-Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree

Semi-Dwarf Lemon Tree (Meyer Variety)

We planted a lemon tree.  It is a semi-dwarf Meyer lemon tree.  It can grow up to 6ft, but no more than 8ft.  I planted it in a beautiful piece of pottery we purchased from the Plant Stand to contain its size.

I had been to the Plant Stand and walked around taking in all of what they have, and they have A LOT.  Real and artificial plants and trees.  Indoor and outdoor plants.  Small, medium and large pottery.  I took my husband back because he would like to grow new trees in the backyard, and I told him the Plant Stand may be his source.

Falling Green 20″ Potter

I went online as well and browsed around.  I decided to go back to get a planter for my new lemon tree.  It was hard to decide because there are so many great choices, but I fell in love with this planter.  I paid $83 and they will cure the pot for 20% of the cost, which was about $16 for the protection against the continuous watering and ailments.

The Plant Stand has many selections of pottery fitting any style. Here is another snippet of what they have to offer indoors.

When I do anything, I research all there is to know about it, or at least I try.  My Google search, “what soil should a beginner gardener use for food gardening?”  This soil came up many times, on many lists so I decided on this one.  It was $7.47 per bag at Home Depot.  I purchased 2 bags, but I only needed one and little bit.

Miracle Grow-Cactus, Palm & Citrus Soil

I took my Meyer lemon tree out of the original container, along with its native soil and combined it with the Miracle Grow-Cactus, Palm and Citrus soil.  We purchased the lemon tree from Lowe’s Home Improvement store for $30.  Next, we watered the soil and placed the tree in the space  that will be its home for now.

Have you grown citrus before?  How many fruits does your tree produce yearly?
