Here’s Why the Meyer Lemon is the Best Selling Patio Citrus Tree:

So Hardy, it Grows Indoors or Out… reportedly withstanding brief temperatures as low as 22 F. If you live in a colder climate, you can easily move it inside for the winter. Your tree will continue to bear fruit and brighten your home. Its vivid yellow/orange fruit against its glossy evergreen foliage will make this your all-time favorite houseplant.

You Get a Lot of Lemons to Eat and Share. These are prolific fruiters, even when young. Order our large-sized trees and you will be picking lemons the very first season. Plus, Meyer Lemons ripen over several months, not all at once, so you have more time to enjoy them.

A Great Tasting Lemon. Meyers are naturally sweeter than standard lemons. My children make healthy, nutritious Meyer Lemonade with just lemons and water… no processed sugar or artificial sweeteners.

Amazing Citrus Blossoms Fill Your Home or Yard with a Fresh, Delightful Scent. The fragrance is almost like a jasmine/citrus blend. It’s one of the best smelling plants I know of. These blooms self-pollinate, so you can produce fruit with just one tree. However, a tree will produce even more with a second one to cross-pollinate with.

This is a FUN Tree. It’s almost always doing something. Either it’s fruiting or blooming. When friends come over, they will want to see what’s new with your Meyer Lemon… it’s almost like having a pet.

Trouble-Free Citrus Tree. Highly adaptable and forgiving… just give it a little organic fertilizer and water occasionally. Long lived and capable of producing thousands of dollars of fruit over a 30 year period. If you bring it indoors, try to place it within 4 feet of a sunny window. Meyer Lemons love growing in containers. The size of your pot will determine the size of your tree.

All Meyer Lemon Trees are NOT the Same. With ours you will be able to pick fruit up to 3-5 years sooner, because your tree is grafted, not grown from seed. We graft the top of a mature Meyer Lemon tree on to the root stock of a cold hardy, disease resistant citrus tree. The result: your tree thinks it's mature and starts producing fruit right away. Grafting is a natural process that has been used for thousands of years. It is time consuming and can add a year or more to our growing process. But here's the benefit for you:

  • You won't have to wait years for lemons
  • Lemons proven to taste great, rather than playing genetic roulette
  • A cold hardy tree, that's less prone to disease problems
  • More fruit over the life of your tree
  • A more controlled size 

Your tree can grow twice as fast. It arrives in it's own container, with all of its roots intact. Some companies ship citrus trees without dirt on the roots. This is fine for some types of fruit trees but not citrus. Their roots can dry out and become damaged. This will slow their growth. Your tree arrives with a large root system, ready to support rapid growth. The root systems on our shorter Meyer Lemons are 3-4 times larger than some of our competitors. While their trees are growimg roots, your tree is growing fruit.

What Size do I Need? If your sun exposure or growing conditions are less than ideal, then we recommend you start with one of our larger trees. They're already at a heavy fruiting size, with well developed branching structures. Some of these trees have been grown for up to 4-5 years and have fruited for several seasons. They do run out of stock.  So we recommend that you place your order while supplies are still available.

It's Easy to Plant your Meyer Lemon Tree

Specific Directions for Meyer Lemon Tree

Your Meyer Lemon Tree will love to be planted in an area that receives full sunlight, or at least six hours of sunlight a day. Make sure that the area isn't too windy and the temperatures consistently stay above 50 degrees. If you keep your Meyer Lemon Tree indoors place it by a big window that receives a lot of sunlight.

Meyer Lemons Trees enjoy sandy, well drained, moist soil. Do not over water your tree, once your soil is dry two inches about two inches down it's time to give your tree a deep watering. Give your tree water until you notice water draining from the bottom of its pot.

An organic or citrus fertilizer will make your tree happy. In the early Spring and late fall apply fertilizer to your tree every four to six weeks.

Meyer Lemon Trees bloom twice a year and produce fruit year around. Once the flowers drop, fruit will fill in. Leave your lemons on your tree until then turn a shade of yellow that's close to the color of an egg yolk.

Your Lemons will stay green for many months, and will not ripen until their color changes.

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Meyer Lemon Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Meyer Lemon Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Meyer Lemon Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

How long should it take before lemons start growing?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: If you water the plant appropriately it should be pretty responsive and do lemons after the first year. The number of lemon will increase over time but expect it to be small at the beginning.

We water the plant every weekend with one watering can and some plants nutrients in the water.

We have had your Meyer Lemon tree since May of this year. It has lost about 40% of its leaves and no new growth. It was indoors for about a month, then got warm enough to move outside where it stayed until last week. My question is why do the leaves get yellow and drop off?

why is my plants end of limbs wilting?
donnette d on Jun 8, 2014
Best Answer: If they're turning black that is a sign of over watering. If the leaves are heavy and droopy looking ease up on the amount of water you're giving your tree. If the leaves are curling upwards then your tree needs a little extra water. You may need to fertilize your tree with some citrus fertilizer.

Can meyer lemon trees be grown in a pot outside?
Candace C on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: Yes, meyer lemons are pretty easy to grow in a pot and bring inside for the winter. They are very prolific lemon producers (they fruit more if they are close to being root bound). Of all the citrus trees they are also the most likely to survive scale or spider mite infestation. In order to prevent such an infestation, it is best to spray preventively with neem oil solution twice (about a week apart) especially before bringing the tree inside, and also periodically spray with fish emulsion solution which helps with scale and is also a fertilizer. Also, keep the tree free of ants and watch for "honey dew" - sure most visible sign of scale. As long as the tree is free of pests, it is a real pleasure to have around - it is beautiful, fragrant (it blooms inside during winter too), and the lemons are delicious.

I have three medium green lemons and newly formed lemons from buds. How long does it take lemons to mature and turn yellow?
Johnnie w on Jun 9, 2014
Best Answer: Depends on where the trees are and the time of the year. The first buds I got was fall, the tree was in my basement and it took about a month. Left the lemons on until I used them and that was several months. Waiting for it to bud again since it is outside now, I think it will be shorter than a month

Why are my lemons turning black? They start to grow green then turn yellow when they are approximately 3/4 inch long. Then they turn black. We live in Tulsa, OK.
Julie A on Jun 2, 2014
Best Answer: On a young Lemon tree it may set fruit, but not all will survive sometimes the typical spring fruit drops. It is normal often that all of the fruit will fall off the the first two years. The first two years the fruit may turn black and fall off, especially during the first drops, especially if exposed the sun. Also fruit may turn black and fall off if there has been a freeze event of 28 degrees or less for 6 hours or more.
Other than that it could be a sooty mold problem, in that cause remove the leaf litter and spray with a cooper fungicide. But most likely it is the age.

how often should you fertilize my tree ?
A shopper on Jul 15, 2014
Best Answer: It depends on the fertilizer and time of year. With the slow-release type, twice per year is sufficient. I use Dyna-Gro Foliage Pro and use 1 teaspoon per gallon on 'fertilizer Friday' while there's fruit production, and 1/4 teaspoon per gallon during the "off season". You can find it at Amazon and it works great!

Do I need a citrus planting kit?
Margaret R H on Aug 2, 2014
Best Answer: No, it's not necessary to buy a kit. I bought a larger more decorative pot for mine. For another tree I had bought a cactus and citrus potting mix from a major brand-name, and its drainage was poor. I eventually just used a moisture control potting mix formula for my Myer Lemon (after first trying to mix the citrus mix with vermiculite and then having it compact during a series of heavy rains). Myer Lemons are very forgiving. I think, however, if you get the kit while it's on sale, it might be worthwhile. I bought a pot much bigger than necessary, and it would have cost too much to fill that pot. I've since learned that Meyer Lemons actually do well being somewhat root-bound.

in cooler climates when should i bring in my lemon tree?
phil l on Sep 8, 2014
Best Answer: I bring mine in when the night temperatures get below 50 degrees. They say they are tolerant of lower temperatures but I do not want to shock it that much. May plant has six lemons on it now and it is doing well. Watering is critical (do not overwater and provide great drainage) . Do not set in drafts and provide plenty of light. It will loose some leaves when moved but I get a couple harvests of lemons per year. I have done a lot of internet reading and have a friend who has had one for years and he gives me advice on it. Esponia brand citrus fertilizer is supposed to work well but I haven't found it locally, he recommended ferti-lome root stimulator and plant starter solution to get it established and now to switch to a slow release low numbers fertilizer like 3-3-3. I found a tree stake fertilizer that a store recommended so I just crumbled part of a stake to try it . Like I said I just tried it so I do not know that it will work. Do not overfertilize.

I'm in zone 7 and I may not have a sunny window while keeping the tree indoors. What light will work best for indoor keeping through winter?
Joseph N on Jun 30, 2014
Best Answer: I had mine in a south-facing window. However, due to a spider-mite infestation my tree lost most of its leaves, and it still survived and even produced two lemons. When I was a kid, we used to overwinter a grape fruit tree in our basement, which received very little light. (I live in zone 5, and so it had to be inside a lot longer than what it would for you.) There are lights available that simulate sunlight if you feel that you need to supplement the natural sunlight. My Meyer Lemon bloomed during the shorter days of fall, winter, and early spring. If you get supplemental light you may want to make sure its not on too long.

Do Meyer Lemon Trees do better inside next to large sunny windows or do they do better outside in nearly full sun? Mine is outside and it's not blooming, some limbs look somewhat bare and has dropped some leaves. I'm not sure what to do at this point?
Amy on Aug 8, 2014
Best Answer: This depends on your location. Meyer Lemon Trees enjoy warm temperatures and full sun. If indoors, they still need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. Meyer Lemon Trees do shed their leaves, either to get rid of old leaves or to store energy in preparation to flower. Don't let the leaf drop alarm you. Climate changes can also cause leaf drop.

do I need to thin out the flowers on one branch that might have 3 to 4 flowers on in order for my lemon to grow to the picking size?
Heidi C on Jun 28, 2014
Best Answer: If your lemon tree has too many blooms it will produce a lot of smaller lemons instead of full sized lemons. To prevent this you can remove a few of the blooms by hand or you can cut a few branches back. Make the cuts at 45 degree angles facing upward to promote new growth.

Is this meyer lemon a tree style (with a single trunk & canopy on top) or bush style? Your pictures show both styles. I want to make sure it's a single trunk/tree style before ordering. Thanks.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
