Q.lemon tree

Anonymous added on November 14, 2014 | Answered

I am moving and unable to take the large concrete pot my lemon tree is in. The tree has more fruit on it this year than in previous years and I would like to know if I can transfer it either to another pot or into the ground while it is fruit. (So that I can take it to my new location). What, if any, trauma will I cause the tree and indeed will it survive?

You can repot your tree into another pot, and if the place to which you're moving has a climate suitable for the variety of lemon you have, you can put it outside. However, there's a good chance that you'll lose much of the fruit - but there's always next year.
