I’ve always adored citrus trees but was mistaken in believing that they were only to be enjoyed by those living in warm, sunny locales such as Florida and California. I was delighted when my good friend told me about dwarf meyer lemon trees. These trees can be planted in containers and pruned to a desired height/width. You keep them outside in the summer and simply move them to a sunny spot indoors for the winter months. You can use similar techniques for lime, grapefruit, mandarin and orange trees as well!
I purchased a one year old tree back in June and it was $35 from a local nursery. It hasn't grown very much but has focused its energy on producing lovely blooms and lemons! I have yet to try any lemons but will likely do so very soon.
