Dear Life: Please give me lemons

I finally received my baby Meyer Lemon tree I ordered several weeks back. I was surprised that it actually have leaves on it instead of only being a stick. William helped me plant it and we are hoping for the best. We potted it since citrus can't survive the winter and at that time we will bring it indoors. The tree is only supposed grow to about 4-5 feet at maturity and we should not expect any lemons until the second year. This was all Dwayne's idea (a good one too) and we look forward to seeing what happens! Hopefully my purple thumb won't show itself ;)

Question: Have you ever planted fruit trees in a pot before? If so, was it a success?

  1. I haven't done fruit trees in a pot but I read about a local person growing a pineapple in a pot. We're giving it a shot this year.

  2. Aw it looks so cute. I haven't planted any fruit trees. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.

  3. Do the topsy turvy. It works

  4. This is such a fun project. I can't wait for you to begin sharing progress as it grows.

    Sadly, I can't say that I've really planted much of anything. What a fun hobby - as the boys grow older I think this is something I'd like us to get in to, for sure!

  5. lol@ Purple Thumb! It'll be interesting to see the progress of your tree, love this post title, btw. (sounds like a book title).

  6. We'll be planting our blueberry tree in a pot this weekend. I can't wait to see how your lemon tree grows!
