I also have a Lemon Tree, which I cut back hard in the Summer to try to re-shape it, and this resulted in a lot of fresh growth low down on the old woody trunk, which is good to see. Hopefully I shall be able to remove further bare branches
next Summer. That new growth should flower this year, and hopefully there will be le,ons to harvest again. These are full sized ones and take a very long tme to mature and fully ripen
The Lime tree, which is about 18 montsh old, is ready for repotting
in the Spring, and I am hoping to add a Meyers Lemon tree or two as well, by planting some pips from fruit that came home with me from Goa. Miriam's are already growing roots, so the seeds are viable, which is good to know
The flowers of all cirtus
are strongly scented, and it is a real lift in the depths of the Winter when they fill the kitchen with their sweet perfume.
ONce the frosts are over, all the trees will be moved back outside again, to a sheltered spot which they seem to like,
shaded from the mid day sun at the height of Summer
