How To Care for your new Meyer Lemon Tree

Grow you Improved Meyer Lemon tree in full sun and well-drained soil. When planting in the ground water deeply 2 times per week until your dwarf citrus tree is established.  After the first few months, water when the soil begins to dry.  Meyer Lemons do not like wet roots so be sure the soil has dried down to about 2 inches whether in the ground or in containers.  Citrus plants like humid environments so misting the leaves daily in dry environments is ideal.  Fertilize with our balanced, slow release fertilizer when planting and in early spring and late summer.  Containerized plants perform better when fertilized 3 - 4 times per year.  Prune anytime for shape and size maintenance.

Planting Directions

Step 1:

Unpack all of your plants right away! Look for the perfect location. Make sure you are planting in the correct light conditions.

Step 2:

Dig a hole twice the width of the root ball. Position your plant in the hole. Make sure the top of the root ball is slightly higher than the original grade of the bed. Also check to make sure it is straight from all sides.

Step 3:

Fill up hole with water before placing new plant in hole in order to saturate the surrounding soil.  Once the water is absorbed place your plant in the hole and water thoroughly.

Step 4:

Mix the potting soil and the soil removed from the hole. Start by backfilling soil around the root ball. Carefully pack in the soil to remove any air pockets. Water plant thoroughly again until the soil will not hold any more water. This will ensure that your new plant will be a success.

Step 5:

Fertilize around your plant with the amount recommended on the package. Our special Fertilizer contains all of the nutrients to keep your plants growing and healthy. Repeat every 3 months.

Step 6:

Finish up by mulching around your new plant.  Apply 1-2 inches of mulch around the plant and plant bed. Mulch will help keep the soil moist and keep weeds out.

Step 7:

Keep watered with a hose every 2-3 days for 2 weeks. This is critical for plant survival. In the third week, begin to water as needed depending on the weather. Always check by placing your finger under the mulch to see if the soil is moist.

Can it sit on top of a table? As part of a centerpiece?
Valerie L on May 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: If you want blooms and lemons it requires a very sunny spot in your home. You can use a plant light as a sub. Citrus performs best with at least 8 hours of full sun per day.
