How to Care for a Lemon Tree
Lemon Trees require at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight per day. Choose a sunny spot on your balcony or garden where the tree will receive ample sunlight.
Tip 1: the top of the soil may look dry but it can be wet beneath, so before watering your plant, dip your finger into the soil to feel the level of moisture. If it feels soggy, wait for a few days and check again.
Tip 2: you can use a baster or syringe to remove any excess water from the saucer.
