Q.Planting Minature Fruit Trees Outdoors
I have minature Meyer lemon, Kefir lime and blood organge trees in pots. I have had them in pots for about 1 year. I would like to plant them outdoors in my garden. I would like to know how big I can expect these minature trees to get once planted outdoors.
The literature that came with them stated they would grow no taller than 24″ in pots and they all about this size or maybe a little bit taller.
I have gotten only 1 lemon from the Meyer lemon tree. No limes, although it did have several limes that were bumped off. It is now flowering. The Meyer lemon had flowers on it last year but no fruit. The blood orange has never had flowers on it but has flourished with the most leaves. They all look very healthy.
