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.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
