Growing lemons at home, will help you see the difference between those and the ones that you find in the grocery store. There is a huge difference in the taste, the quality, the freshness simply in everything, and mostly there will be no chemicals in them, they will be fully organic!
It doesn’t matter if you are using their peels, or you just add them to your morning smoothie or your tea, what’s important is that you grow them at home! Simply buy a baby lemon tree, about 2 to 3 years old, and it will be easy to grow from that point forward.
Also buy a clay or plastic pot (with poked holes on the bottom), make sure the pot is bugger than the roots of the baby lemon tree, because once it gets big enough, it will surely need a pot that is 17-20 inches in diameter and 12-15 inches in depth.
When you are planting the tree, make sure you put some stones in the pot to improve the air flow inside the pot, also don’t forget to add some soil into the pot. There are some soils are only made for growing citrus trees and fruits, which will provide even better results.
This is all of the preparation for the planting process. Make sure it catches the sunlight for about 8-10 hours a day, and do not over water it, because that will destroy it. For the fruit to become ripe it needs about 6-9 months, and once the fruit becomes the color as it should, they are ready!
