Plant Care Tips: Lemon Tree
Place your lemon tree in full sun away from cold draughts. They like medium texture soil with slight acidity.
- While the tree is establishing itself, it will need more water, maybe once or twice a week. The soil must be moist but not wet.. As it matures, it will not need as much hydration. Be careful to not overwater it to avoid root rot.
- The ideal temperatures are between 23ºC and 30ºC. A little bit of humidity is also great. Keep it away from radiators.
During the growing season, use a nutrient-rich fertiliser to encourage healthy growth.
