Lemon tree

Postby Ann » Mon Aug 14, 2006 3:25 pm

I transplanted it because it was not doing well and I blamed the alkaline soil. It's still sulking, so as I hate throwing things out I was going to put it in a pot, but do not have any big ones left. :cry: What I do have are several large, deep polystyrene boxes as shown in the photos and wondered whether to just use one of them. :?: It could go at the far end of the line :lol:

Why not? It would be smart to put plastic bags in first, as you did before, so as the lemon tree recovers with your tender loving care and new soil, and the polystyrene disintegrates, you can slither it carefully into a hole somewhere nice. :D
