Effortless Growth, Kitchen to Patio
The Meyer Lemon Bush, 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.
Imagine vivid yellow and orange fruit even sooner – the Meyer Lemon Bush holds more fruit at a younger age, meaning instant contrast against glossy evergreen foliage, faster.
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).
Best of all? This bountiful bush is hassle-free because it’s easy to move indoors and out, and it’s ideal for container planting. Long-lived and wonderfully lush, it’s super versatile, whether it’s placed in your home or elevating your garden.
Furthermore, we’ve nurtured our Meyer Lemon Bushes meticulously for cold hardiness and disease resistant. The Meyer Lemon Bush arrives in its own container, with all of its roots intact. Is there anything better than instant luxuriance?
Order your own Meyer Lemon Bushes today for fresh fragrance and elegance, delivered right to your door.
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.

Planting & Care
Versatile and vibrant, the Meyer Lemon Bush is an ideal pick that grows well, indoors or out. It’s a choice plant for container growing and is easily protected during the winter months by covering or moving inside. And though it’s effortless to maintain, our tips and tricks will ensure bolstered growth for months to come.
Location: 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.
Remember to water the Meyer Lemon Bush deeply, once every seven to ten days in midsummer (newly planted bushes may need more frequent watering until they’re established), and water it less often if it rains or if the weather is cool.
Planting instructions: 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.
Watering: Allow the soil to dry, down to around 2 inches, between waterings. Never let your Meyer Lemon Bush remain in standing water.
But while the roots prefer to stay on the dry side, citrus leaves love humidity. 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.
Pollination assistance: 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.
Fertilization: We recommend applying 2 to 3 inches of organic matter to your soil to conserve moisture for best results.
