Lemon tree update

Well I finally have something to report on the little lemon tree. He is in NO hurry to grow up! In October, he will be 3 years old. It took 2 months to poke his little head out of the dirt. I was giving up and turning off the grow light when I spotted him:

Then it took many weeks for this:

Then months:

Last winter he had around 6 leaves and lost 3 of them....I thought it was curtains for sure.....

Now, as of today, he is a whole foot tall! Nice rebound  my little tree:)


  1. Aw bless, he really is taking his time. I've read that it can take up to six years for them to produce fruit so you better get yourself a good book and a comfy chair ;0P

  2. Hello Linda,
    Late bloomers (no pun intended) often turn out to be the most impressive. I can't wait to see him in a few months.
    Big hug,

  3. you are one patient lady Linda, but it's wonderful to see how this little lemontree manages to grow, hopefully to a beautiful fruitbaring one!

  4. Hooray for your patience and faith! The little Lemon Tree looks wonderful! In my experience dry winter air is really hard on them... so keep him as "tropical" as possible! I look forward to updates on his progress!
