When it has fruit on it, will definately get pictures up.

So far it's doing really well, just being watered a little more often, and

no flowers have fallen off. They have actually gotten bigger and wow

do they smell good. Like a gardenia. So far two big sets of flowers.

Hope it gets more?

This time I will definately be saving seeds from the fruit.. I didn't last

time. :(

Did give a lemon to a friend and she got two, that I know of, to sprout

and start growing, out of 4 seeds.

I just started the last 7 calamonian dwarf orange tree seeds. I have

22 growing now, from the last seeds I started. Hope they keep

growing as well as they are, because they are all spoken for. :wink:

That sounds like a whole lot of fun. It is really too bad it to too dry in my new house to have citrus trees !

You should try anyway, see what happens? Go buy a Meyer Lemon,

take the seeds out, wash off the yucky stuff around the seeds, put in

Wet paper towel in a dish ( you can put a top on) then put more damp

paper towel over top of the seeds, put the lid on, wait about 4-6 wks.

They should

have sprouted by then. It's cheap and fun. Go for it. :D

Re: Please Help My Meyer Lemon!!

Just wanted to update on the Meyer Lemon Tree.

It's doing great, and so far there are 6 little green lemons coming, about 3/4 of an

inch long. Then a bunch coming on the remaining flowers. At this rate it's going to

be loaded. Will need to support the branches I think.

When they are all out, I'm going to try for a picture. :oops:

Re: Please Help My Meyer Lemon!!

the branches will bend to accommodate the fruit. You might have to support the trunk to keep it from leaning.
Happy gardening in Hawaii. Gardens are where people grow.
