If you plan to grow your lemon tree in a 50x50x50cm pot, use a whole bag of our volcanic rock dust with a mixture of compost and potting soil. Place stones on the bottom of your pot
for good drainage.
If planting in the ground, dig a hole at least 50 cm wide and 50cm deep. If the soil is loamy (not clay) mix your soil with a bag of our Volcanic Rock Dust. Volcanic Rock Dust remineralises
your soil for better growth and fruit production.
Position – Full sun is best otherwise partial shade.
Soil – Lemon trees require slightly acidic soil with a PH between 5.5 – 6.5.
Watering – Water regularly.
Mulch – Mulch around the tree with pine needles or pine bark
(we do stock this if required).
Mulch will maintain soil moisture and keep the soil slightly
acidic.
It helps to keep pests away as well. DO NOT let the mulch
touch the stem of the plant.
