Growing Meyer lemon trees in garden pots is a rewarding experience. Not only are they prolific fruit producers, but the blossoms are also incredibly fragrant and beautiful. The Meyer lemon fruit is also sweeter than the fruit of other lemons.
Meyer lemon trees also called Citrus × meyeri will thrive if you provide the right conditions. Care includes finding the ideal location for them: They need at least eight hours a day of direct sunlight, preferably from the southwest direction. Though Meyer lemon trees are naturally shrub-like, they can also be pruned into tree form. When planted in the ground, they can grow up to 8 to 10 feet tall and up to 12 feet wide. When grown in garden pots, your plant will be smaller and grow accordingly with the size of the pot.
