Grow Citrus Trees Indoors
Imagine strolling into the living room to pick a lemon for dinner or a grapefruit for a snack. It's entirely possible with these easy growing tips.
Mix 3 parts regular potting soil with 1 part 1-inch-gauge redwood or cedar shavings (found at pet-supply stores as hamster bedding). Add a dose of slow-release, nitrogen-rich fertilizer, following directions on the package.
Fill bottom of container with about 1 inch prepared potting mix. Center tree and add more mix to fill. Do not plant too deep -- you should be able to see just the top of the roots through the soil's surface. Press down firmly around the perimeter of the root ball to stabilize the tree.
