Why Meyer Lemon Bushes?
The Meyer Lemon Bush is a fresh favorite and new spin on your favorite must-have plant. And not only is it a prolific producer of sizable lemons, but it also fruits in one to two years.
And the aroma from this amazing plant is second to none, since its citrus blossoms fill your home or yard with a fresh scent. Plus, the blooms self-pollinate, so you can produce fruit and one-of-a-kind fragrance with just one bush (but more is more when it comes to ordering two).

Meyer Lemon Bush Pollination
Meyer Lemon Bushs are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Meyer Lemon Bush will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Gift size in small yellow pot
What a wonderful little Meyer Lemon Bush. I received the small gift size in a yellow pot. This is an amazing little pant/bush! It is in my kitchen window sill and covered in blossoms. So happy with it! Very healthy with a pretty little shape and loaded in blossoms. Couldn't be happier. Highly recommend.
Meyer lemon bush
It was nice, but I expected a larger plant. Packing was super.
Enjoying my lemon bush
Plant arrived as promised. Healthy and happy. Planted in container, and will live indoors until night temps stay above 50s consistently. I keep near a window with much natural light. I spray it's leaves daily. I've had it about 1.5 months now. So many blossoms! Water about once a week with liquid fertilizer. Still working on getting the soil with right acidity. Looking forward to fruit in the fall!
I received my lemon bush yesterday and was very surprised to find 2 small green lemons on the bush plus about 20 buds. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.
My plant arrived very healthy and with a lot of forming lemons and flowers on it! Could not be more happy with my purchase.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: It’s best to plant your Meyer Lemon in a warm, sunny area where the soil drains well. Six hours (or more) of direct sun is best for the bush but planting it next to a house or under an eave will provide some frost protection.
Then, select a container one to two pot sizes larger than the shipped container to allow roots to spread. Fill the bottom of your pot with a 2-inch layer of crushed stone to improve drainage and fill a third of the pot of potting soil. Score the roots to promote growth and bury it at the same depth it was planted in its previous pot. Layer with 2 inches of compost for best results.
Water well and place near a South-facing window for the adequate sun exposure.
2. Watering: Allow the soil to dry, down to around 2 inches, between waterings. Never let your Meyer Lemon Bush remain in standing water. Your plant will do best if misted daily, especially when you are running indoor heating during cooler months. You can also use a humidifier or fill your pot's saucer with rocks and add water.
3. Pollination: You can pollinate your indoor bushes by hand. Simply take a small, dry, fine-tipped paint-brush and stick it into the center of one bloom. Swirl it around and collect the pollen on the brush. Go to the next bloom and repeat the process until every bloom has been treated, completing this process once daily and refraining from washing the paintbrush until after the blooms have been pollinated. From there, the bloom will fall off naturally and the fruit will begin to form.
4. Fertilizing: We recommend applying 2 to 3 inches of organic matter to your soil to conserve moisture for best results.
