How to take care of Lemon Tree 25 Cm
Citrus trees – during spring and summer fertilize regularly with a standard liquid fertilizer. Always apply water from the top of the plant allowing the excess to drain. Never let the plant sit in water, it will cause rot.
Plants with fruit should be kept in a light place in the living room for the winter next to a bright window. Plants without fruit should be kept in a light but cool place (10°-20°C) to promote budding such as a windowsill.
This plant is cold resistant, but not frost resistant. They can be brought inside for the winter and left back out in the summer. Each spring the shrub ought to be transplanted to a larger pot, use an Azalea or heather type potting compost.
Pruning should occur during the period of dormancy or right when the new spring growth appears.
