Provide your Eureka Lemon with full sun (at least 6 to 8 hours) and well drained soil. Indoor citrus plants should be placed near a sunny window, glass door, or provided with a plant light for the best results. When planting in the ground water deeply 1 to 2 times per week until your dwarf citrus tree is established. After the first few months, water when the soil begins to dry. Lemon trees do not like wet roots so be sure the soil has dried down to about 2 inches whether in the ground or in pots. Citrus plants like humid environments so misting the leaves daily in dry environments is ideal.
Feed with our balanced slow release fertilizer in early spring and late summer. Containerized plants perform better when fertilized more often than plants in the ground.
Fertilize your potted citrus with our balanced slow release fertilizer 3 times per year. Our formula is safe for use when planting.Prune citrus trees anytime for shape and size maintenance.
Eureka Lemons can only grow in zones 9 to 11 in the ground. Otherwise they must be grown in containers. They will not tolerate freezing temperatures. Move your citrus tree inside when temperatures drop below 40 degrees. Move it back outside when temperatures are in the 50s.
