Lemon tree questions cross pollenation

4 posts in this topic

I have a patio lemon tree 3 yrs old its in a five gallon bucket and is very healthy. Should it produce soon. Is the bucket big enough. Do I need cross pollunation?? Does anyone else have one?

Not sure exactally what a patio lemon is. We have a Lisbon lemon tree in our bedroom. It prune it at the ceiling height of 9 feet. We have it in a cut off 30 gallon plastic drum. Guessing 2 feet in diameter and 18 inches high. It does not leave the house so it gets no cross pollination and we have to pinch of 100's of blossoms every year as I don't think the tree could support that many lemons. We limit it too about 30-40 lemons. We just finished picking the lemons and it is blossoming. It has more lemons than leaves. Good luck.

I do not know the answer to either question. We got it from a guy who would put it outside every summer and bring it back indoors in the fall. It never produced for him. Our bedroom has the south wall covered with 6 foot high windows so it gets lots of winter sun. It started producing the first season. I wonder if maybe the wind had something to do with it. It has become the ugliest looking thing alive. It seems like once the leaves die and fall off they don't produce any more leaves on that growth but it will shoot new blossums on the same branch.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!

    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
