Replanting a Lemon Tree

Anonymous added on November 27, 2010 | Answered

I have a dwarf lemon tree that has been in a pot for about 15-20 years. I would like to plant it in the ground. When is the best time to replant it from the pot to the ground ? Also, will the tree get any bigger than it is now ? it is about 1 foot high ? -

Spring is the best time to transplant lemon trees.

 

It is likely that it will get larger. In the pot, it may have had to deal with nutrient and water restrictions. In the ground, this will be less of a problem. Even dwarf varieties reach at least 3-4 feet tall.
