i have a lemon tree growing in a pot, it is doing very well i think, it is green, very healthy looking,, i have been told i need two for lemons to grow, and i have been told they are self pollinating, since i have had my tree going on third year, i am beginning to think i do need second tree for pollination. which is correct? how long will it take before i have lemons on my tree? thank you Linda
