Meyer Lemon Trees

Is It a Good Time Now to Repot a Lemon Tree

Zone Taupo | Straw added on October 25, 2012 | Answered

Currently my Meyer lemon tree is fruiting and flowering. It is in a container about 450mm dia x 350mm deep and the tree is 800mm high. I am looking at putting it in a half wine barrel.

I would recommend wating until the tree has finished its flowering and fruiting as repotting now could have an adverse affect on this. If you repot it, it is likely the fruit will be discarded by the plant. Fruit trees will abort their fruit first when they come under stress and transplanting is always stressful for a plant.
