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.
