Growing Tips: How to Grow a Lemon Tree

Ever want to know how to grow a lemon?

Lemons are more cold-sensitive than all other citrus trees. Due to this cold sensitivity, lemon trees should be planted near the south side of the home.

Lemon trees need protection from frost. Growing them near the house should help with this.

Lemon trees also require full sunlight for adequate growth.

While lemon trees can tolerate a range of soils, including poor soil, most prefer well-drained, slightly acidic soil.

Lemon trees should be set slightly higher than ground. Therefore, dig a hole somewhat shallower than the length of the root ball. Place the tree in the hole and replace soil, tamping firmly as you go. Water sufficiently and add some mulch to help retain moisture.

Lemon trees require deep watering once weekly.

If necessary, pruning may be done to maintain their shape and height.
