Apartment Garden Blues (Blog): Lemon Tree Flowers!

Lemon Tree Flower Blooms

In my garden, I have a rather large lemon tree. The story behind the lemon tree is that while a family member was cat-sitting for me, she threw some lemon seeds into an empty plant container. Not only did a seed sprout, but it grew really tall (probably about 8 feet tall now).

So far this lemon tree hasn’t produced any fruit, but I’m proud to announce that I spotted a flower!

While I’d really love to keep this plant forever, I’m wondering how long I can keep this one until I’ll need to give it to someone else. It’s getting much too large! My next lemon tree will be a dwarf tree.
