Potted Dwarf Myer Lemon

Postby lilcol » Sun Aug 05, 2018 3:59 pm

My potted dwarf Myer lemon Is flowering furiously.

What do I need to do to ensure I get some fruit at the end.

My husband and son are out there right now constructing a frame over it so we can throw some bird netting over it - possums!

I am in Brisbane.

Only just found I could gain access again...

If you are still looking for an answer: Make sure bees have access to the flowers so pollination can occur. Once small fruit is seen, watch carefully for tiny caterpillars that attack the stems and cause the fruit to fall.
