POT GROWING

Lemon tree is a plant that can be grown in a pot. The soil should be made of compacted soil mixed with peat, manure, sand and gravel. The vase should not be very wide but it is necessary to guarantee a good drainage. Every 4 to 5 years you can repot the plant. You should keep the soil fertilized with frequency and if you want a good looking plant you can trim the branches at the end or at the beginning of the summer season.


FERTILIZATION

For lemon trees it is necessary to add humus or manure with constant frequency. The fertilization phase is very important and it would be useful to analyze leaves and soil in order to have the right information about what is lacking and what not. Using fertilizers made especially for citrus trees would be a good idea every once in a while.


Lemon: CARE

Watering the lemon tree should be done when the soil looks very dry. Keep the soil wet but not soaked during the summer and place the plant in a sunny location, while during the winter it is not necessary to keep it as wet as during the summer. Trimming should be done during the summer once the plant has finished blooming. Removing those parts of the plant affected by parasites will keep it safe. Cochineals, oidius and similar are the most common parasites. When leaves, flowers, fruits start to change color or they present dark spots, the plant has been affected. It shows signs of diseases also because of the lack of minerals, so always remember to take care of your lemon preventing damages.
