How do I water my Lisbon Lemon Trees?
Container-grown lemon trees such as a Lisbon Lemon tree needs more water than those planted outside. In the spring, water two to three times a week. In the summer, as temperatures rise, your container-grown lemon tree may need to be watered daily. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. A good indication of when you should water is to check the top 2 to 3 inches of soil. If it is dry to the touch, your Ponderosa lemon tree needs watering. Houses generally don't have the humidity lemon trees need to grow and bear fruit. Mist or spray your lemon tree several times a week with a spray bottle.
How do I fertilize my Lisbon Lemon Trees?
We recommend feeding your indoor citrus plants with Espoma Citrus-tone. It is best to feed your plants by sprinkling one teaspoon of fertilizer on the soil surface per every 4 inches of pot diameter. Apply double for pots over 12 inches. Be sure to mix the fertilizer into the top layer of soil by using a fork to gently stir the fertilizer into the top 2 inches of soil evenly. With frequent watering of potted plants, nutrients may be lost and more frequent applications may be required. Feed every 60 days in late winter through early fall when the tree is in its growing season.
What type of soil is best for my Lisbon Lemon Trees?
When it comes to your Lisbon Lemon Trees, any mix will do but it is important to use a soil mix that is lightweight and drains well. Espoma Cactus Mix provides an optimal mix for your Ponderosa Lemon Tree to grow beautifully. This will contain perlite and peat moss which encourages optimal drainage, and root aeration.
How should I prune my Ponderosa Lemon Tree?
Regular pruning of Lisbon Lemon trees is necessary to encourage outward growth for better fruit production. Disinfect your pruning tools with a solution of 10-percent bleach, which contains one part bleach and nine parts water. Bypass pruners work well for clipping small branches less than 1/2 inch in diameter. Eliminate any rubbing or crossing branches to encourage an outward growing habit with an open center, so sunlight reaches all the branches.
