lemon tree/harvesting

Posted: 09/01/2013 at 22:09

Lemons like good air circulation, they like being outddors, they just don't like frost. (you may be as well getting it outside on warmer days- say min 15c) Make sure your not over watering it, they like to be quite dry, if the top of the soil is damp (dont water it), if it feels dry then leave it a week before watering it. Can you see roots coming out of the bottom of the pot? (any moss on top?)

Yeah, I live in an old victorian house and would love an old victorian chimney pot to use as a planter but they are crazy expensive to buy. I also love the idea of using an old belfast sink as a mini pond.

Hi all, I was sent a link for Seedy Sunday, a seed swap in Brighton on Sunday 3rd Feb. (I am honestly  nothing to do with the planning of this).

Take a look if you'd like list of exhibitors: http://www.seedysunday.org/page_id__136_path__0p1p.aspx

Main web page: http://www.seedysunday.org/

It looks like they are all over the country aswell.

Well Sam Glendinning, it sounds like you have had a very productive day. I am impressed.. If your muscles arent hurting too much, would you like to come to mine and help me . Not sure about planting your toilet with parsley, wont that be tricky when you need to do numbers?
