Re: Buying a Lemon Tree in Zurich

I have spent my childhood secretly sticking citrus pits into my Mom's plant pots and have her holler when they grow..

It is easy to grow your own citrus, they will sprout anywhere you stick the pit in.

Lemons seemed to pick up the easiest and tangerines.

You can do the same with dates, too, little palm trees will show up in a couple of weeks.

How long had you been waiting for a lemon tree thread so you could use that?

Re: Buying a Lemon Tree in Zurich

correct me if I'm wrong, but does one require a graft of healthy fruit buds for a lemon tree to spout fruit?

Yes. I was told you have to wait until the plant is at least 30cms tall.

Re: Buying a Lemon Tree in Zurich

I've recently seen them in Coop Bau+Hobby in Zug so I guess you will find them there in Zurich too?

How long before you see a little tree, and how big of a pot do you recommend? I totally want to try this!
