Thank you so much Applestar! I knew they were some sort of pod, but have no idea how they got there
Where do they come from? Am I not doing something to keep them at bay, or is that common for lemon tress?
I'm going to soak them off right now!
Thank you too, imafan26! It does look like it produces tiny limes - do they turn yellow when the tree matures?
When I bought the tree (3 years or so ago) from Home Depot, it came with citrus food tablets to use during the growing season. It has grown a good bit since I bought it, but I've only repotted it once. Since I live in Northwest Georgia, I keep it indoors in the winter - in as much light as possible, and outside in the summer and fall. I still have it in a pot since I wasn't sure if it would survive all year outside. Can you even grow lemon trees in Georgia? Should I keep it outside all the time as long as it's not freezing temps? We just had a snow about 2 weeks ago and will probably have another in February. This week it has been in the low 40's to high 60's...You never can tell around here...
What about pruning? I have searched how and when, but I'm still not clear on what to cut, when, and where...
Obviously I'm not up to speed on lemon trees...I really appreciate the replies
