Q.planting lemon tree in same bed as roses

Zone Garsfontein Pretoria Gauteng | whitsonteresa added on May 14, 2015 | Answered

Can I plant a lemon tree in the same bed as roses? Full sun, plenty of water. Small garden so roses will be quite close to the lemon tree.

I really would not recommend it. Rosebushes do not like to compete with trees for water and nutrition. If the garden was large and there was a good 6 feet from the rosebushes, then may be okay. But for small gardens I recommend finding a nice spot near the rose bed yet 6 to 8 feet of clearance.
