In midwinter, you'll relish the fragrant white flowers that cover the branch tips in clusters. Tiny, waxy, intricate blooms smell of heavenly fresh citrus. With lovely purple buds and brilliant yellow stamens, the white flowers really are very showy. The main flush is in winter or early spring, but you might be delighted by blooms throughout the year!
Each bloom is perfect and can pollinate itself with a little support from the breeze. Keep your windows and doors open when they are blooming to help Mother Nature along.
Please note that we always recommend buying 2 or more trees for the best results. You'll get a heavier fruit set with more than one tree.
The heaviest crop of fruit is in winter but Meyer Improved does produce fruit at any time of the year. The fruits are fantastic to have at your disposal for cooking, baking, cocktails, and all kinds of drinks.

How to Use Meyer Lemon Trees in the Landscape
Include in your landscape if you are growing where your plants will not freeze in the landscape. Their excellent glossy green foliage makes a great screening plant that has a wonderfully shaggy texture.
Add along the length of an existing fence to easily raise the height of your private boundary. You'll love the look of these useful living fence and gain a valuable harvest for yourself, friends and family members.
For a solid screen, plant them 10 feet apart on center. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next. The canopies will grow together and touch.
Expand that distance a bit to 15 feet apart and plant them in a regular pattern to create a geometrically precise orchard. This could be a magnificent focal point in the home or as a noteworthy feature of a commercial property.
Try a single tree as an evergreen shade tree with benefits. Place in a mulched bed near your patio and enjoy an easy care accent. The golden yellow fruit is highly ornamental.
For a hard-working modern Edible Landscape, try a single tree at the corner of your house to anchor your foundation planting. Plant it 20 - 25 feet away from your home to gain easy access to the fruit, and to access your home exterior. Limb up the lower branches to create a tree-form, or leave them on to create a privacy shrub.
Meyer Lemons are hardy in the ground down to 32 degrees F. Many people in colder climates love growing Meyer Lemon Trees in containers grown on your patio or porch during the spring, summer and fall.
Bring them inside just before the chance of frost. Give them a spot in front of a very sunny window for a winter home. Provide a growing location in a south facing window, or experiment supplementing with a grow light. Then when the threat of frost passes, take them back outdoors.
Pro tip: Use a resin pot to make the seasonal moves a bit easier.
Meyer Improved will stay a bit smaller if you grow it in a container. Who wouldn't want a Lemon tree growing on your patio or deck? Lemon trees offer a beautiful tropical look for any garden or patio.
#ProPlantTips for Care
Try Meyer Lemon Tree planted in the ground or grown as a lemon tree indoors in the cooler months. Choose a sunny area for the best results. Turn your container tree a quarter turn every few weeks to ensure all areas get sunlight.
Meyer Lemons require well draining soil. The roots must never remain in wet or waterlogged soil as the plants can root rot.
As you might imagine, you'll want to pay careful attention to not overwater any Citrus tree. This is especially true when they are grown in a container and especially when grown indoors too.
However, when you have developing fruit, it's important to give an even amount of medium moisture. Use the finger test to see when to water. Poke your finger into the soil to your second knuckle. If it's getting dry, slowly add water. Pour off excess or use pebbles in the saucer to elevate your plant up and out of standing water.
They also really like humidity. Regularly use a spray bottle, humidifier or pebble tray to increase the humidity for your indoor Lemons.
If you need to correct the shape or remove a crossing branch, you can do light pruning as needed at any time. The goal of pruning should be to increase the amount of sunlight and air circulation into the interior of your plant. (Wise gardeners decide what they will keep first, and then remove the rest.)
Provide periodic application of an organic Citrus fertilizer. Follow the directions on the package. Do this through the growing season, stopping to give your plant a rest in late summer or early fall.
