Update on My Meyer Lemon

So far my Meyer Lemon has not dropped any of its blossoms and the actual blossoms continue to get plumper. One almost looks like it is ready to bloom fully as a flower. I know it could take months before I see any lemons, but I am amazed we have gottten this far with this tree that I have had only a few weeks. It seems to tolerate being indoors , which I was concerned about. But I will probably put it outside in its pot in mid May.


  1. I used to have a Meyer Lemon tree that I bought one winter when I was having a weak moment. It's biggest challenge was pests ... mostly spidermites and scale. Keep an eye out for those. A friend of mine actually harvested full-sized Meyer Lemons from his tree at Christmas time. I made lemon cookies from the one he gave me, and I brought them to his Christmas party. He was surprised, and pleased.

  2. Thanks Hartwood Roses for the info and welcome to my blog. Also keep us updated on your new dog Ruby and how Daniel is doing.
