Question of the Week
browse by: questions
Thank you to Garron Guszak who sent us this photo and question in February. He had kept his Meyer's lemon in a greenhouse over winter, so it didn't freeze the way many of our Meyer's lemons did.
But he hadn't seen flowers yet in mid-February. In his case, the tree may still have been a bit young. However, he does report that it has flowered since then.
Lemon trees in the ground may be late to return, and they may come back from lower down in the tree, as the top part may have been damaged. At this time, you can remove that dead growth. They may not flower this year. Fertilize them this spring and summer to help them regain leaves and fruit for next year.
