How to Grow Your Own Organic Lemon Tree From Seed

After selling our home and moving into something much, much smaller without a backyard, I was very upset I would not be able to continue to garden. This past summer I was not able to do the gardening I had wanted to do so badly. Before the house sold, two years before, I had taken an organic peach pit and throw it in my garden bed. Little did I know, it would grow! And grow it did! It broke my heart to leave that tree behind, but I knew it would be in good hands. This year I wanted to start something special, to prove that you can grown a garden even in a small place without a backyard. Even thought it is winter time, you can start these lemon trees in the house (since they probably will be indoor most of the year- can only really be outdoor in the summer; of course not too hot all depends on your climate, here in Ohio I know my limits).

This is part one of two parts. Once the lemons seeds start routing I will post another post. Then I will keep everyone updated on FaceBook (be sure to LIKE our page) on the progress of our trees! Remember, fruit trees take 3 years to develop fruit (some take longer), so be patient and enjoy the journey, no need to rush this process.


Okay let's get started...

Materials:

Organic Lemon
Organic Potting Soil (with fertilizer already in)
Pot
Spray Bottle (dollar tree :))


Place dirt in your pot filling it to the top


Get the seeds out of your organic lemon


Push into soil


Water well, daily. Do not over water- place in area with lots of sun


I placed mine in the office/craft room on my crochet granny square 
Stick around with me for part 2 of this... That will be once the little seeds start sprouting!! eek! I cannot wait!
