Lemons can be grown in the garden or in pots.
When planting in the garden, it is best to plant in early spring or early fall in full sun on higher ground. The best soil depth for planting is 80 to 100 cm. When burying the soil, you can mix some fine sand and organic fertilizer to help drainage and increase soil nutrients. Finally, compact the soil and water thoroughly. If planting in a pot, it is best to choose a larger pot to allow enough room for the lemon roots to grow.
