Some citrus fruits are easier to grow than others, and luckily, two of the best can be grown right in your backyard. By growing yourself, you can taste the difference in the freshness and quality, and keep your body free from any chemical contamination in non-organic farming. Here is how to grow their own citrus fruits
I recommend buying a tree for babies (2-3 years) to get the best results with your lemons. Choose a crock pot or plastic (with a lot of holes in the bottom), and make sure it is a bit larger than the ball real root of your baby tree (when the tree matures, you may need a pot that is about 12- 15 inches deep, and 17 to 20 inches in diameter). Get your baby tree in the pot and fill the drain pan with stones to improve airflow. Then fill the pot with soil. Note that some soils are prepared specifically for growing citrus, so you will probably get better results.
That’s basically all the preparation you need. Make sure you are taking about 8-10 hours of sunlight a day, and water regularly (be careful not to over-water). Lemons take about 6-9 months to mature, so when they have a color and a light touch to give your -. Everything is ready
Or you can grow a seed.
“To grow your own lemon tree, which are needed for the following:
- An organic lemon from non-organic lemons often contain seeds will not germinate
- fertile potting soil, preferably containing peat, vermiculite, perlite and natural
- a planting pot that is six inches wide and six inches deep
- a pot of seedlings is approximately 24 inches wide by 12 inches deep
- a, indoor growing sunny location and possibly a light crop
Follow these steps to grow your own lemon tree:
- moisten the potting soil that is moist but not soggy, all the way through.
- Fill the smaller pot with soil, all the way up to an inch below the rim.
- Cut the lemon open and remove a seed. Remove all pulp surface. A good way to do this is simply to suck until it is clean.
- NOT delay planting. The seed must be still wet when buried in the ground. Plant the seed of a half an inch deep in the center of the pot.
- Spray the soil that is directly above the seed lightly with water from a spray bottle.
- cover the pot with a clear plastic wrap, seal the edges with a good rubber band, and make small holes in the top with a pencil.
- Place the pot in a warm, sunny place.
- spray on more water occasionally, not allowing the soil to dry. Do not make the water puddle however. Just we keep the soil slightly moist.
- After two weeks, when the sproutling arises, take off the plastic covering. If you need more light for plant lemon, you can use a grow light to supplement sunlight.
- Take care of the young plant, keeping the soil moist, making sure you get at least eight full hours of light per day, and giving moderate dose of organic fertilizer.
- see more of your plant to ensure that it is not attacked by insects or diseases. Pruning, brown dead leaves when necessary. Use pesticides if necessary. Protect your new lemon tree!
- When the plant grows his small boat, put in large pot. You will therefore the same procedure when the plant is back as when first planted. Young plants need more water than older plants, but they do need adequate water. Do not starve your poor plant after all that work your crop!
If you want to grow your tree inside, I recommend going to a baby tree, the same so it is recommended for lemons. These trees milk tend to have growth records more successful than from seeds. Prepare the boat in the same way you would (with rocks and large drainage holes in the bottom) lemons, and oranges give normal sunlight.
mandarins are safe to grow indoors because they usually do not grow much taller than 6 feet tall. Water them regularly, but conservatively, and change the pot to a larger once the roots grow on themselves or give out your drainage holes. Collect oranges as soon as they turn orange, because every time after that means more and more flavor die away.
