Lemon Tree


How to care for your

EEFM Lemon Tree

Lemon Tree Plant Profile 
 
Common Name: Lemon Tree 
 
Scientific/Botanical Name:  Eureka
 
Watering: Water the lemon tree often. As the EEFM Lemon Trees are potted up they need water twice a week and may need to be watered daily during hot and dry weather. Once established, lemon trees planted in pots will still need a deep watering every 7 to 14 days, depending on weather conditions. The shallow root system of a lemon tree can become dehydrated during dry periods so maintain watering consistantly.
If flowers, leaves or unripe fruit begin to drop it’s a good indication that your tree is too dry.
 
Sunlight: Lemon Trees love full sun. Display in a site that gets at least 4 hours of sun a day (8 is better), and is protected from wind and frost.
Pruning: Prune your Lemon Tree only as needed to remove suckers and dead, damaged or diseased branches. Leggy growth ruining the shape of the plant can also be cut back if desired. You can remove problem limbs as soon as you see them – Eureka lemons produce fruit all year and will never go dormant, so pruning can be done any time.
