Meyer Lemon 10"
***Available for local pickup only!!***
Growing Meyer lemons is popular with home gardeners and for good reason. Meyer lemons are well known for their unique, sweeter flavor. Aside from fruit, its attractive, evergreen foliage and sporadic, fragrant flowering are among the reasons people like growing Meyer lemons. Production of the lemon fruit is an added bonus. Meyer lemon growing can be grown outside in USDA Hardiness Zones 8-11. Those in more northern areas successfully grow Meyer lemons in large containers that are overwintered indoors, away from freezing temperatures. When the weather begins to warm, your Meyer Lemon will do best if you gradually bring it outside (beginning with a short amount each day, so it can acclimate to outdoor conditions). Fertilize with a citrus-specific fertilizer), water regularly, and keep humid. If the leaves begin to yellow or curl, it might need water or fertilizer.
Light: Bright direct light when indoors. Citrus plants do best with 6-8 (or more) hours of sunlight a day. When the weather is warm enough for your Meyer Lemon to be outside, transition slowly, beginning with one or two hours and working up from there.
Water: Water regularly, allowing soil to dry out slightly (but still remain somewhat moist).
