Lemons

Last year Deb told me about how she grew a lemon tree from seed as a kid with her mom. Later that year Nath gave it a go and was pretty successful with three plants. So took Nath’s advice earlier this summer and sowed a few lemon pips in hope that they might germinate. Only four weeks later and there were three pale green tips poking through the compost resulting in two seedlings (lost one along the way). The high temperatures must have helped with the whole process and hopefully given them a good start. Since it’s been so warm I’ve started keeping them outside – help them prepare for the winter ahead in my cold house! Not sure that they will fruit because, as Al pointed out, the fruit might have been irradiated, ah well, time will tell.
