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.

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
