Dwarf Improved Meyer Lemon Tree in South Florida

g8rgrlJanuary 28, 2012

Hello. I am new to the forum. Does anyone know where I can buy a dwarf Improved Meyer Lemon tree in South Florida? I want one small enough to grow on my patio so I can maintain it and access the fruit easily. My local nursery has them but they are full-size. They told me the full-size ones they have will grow to 15 feet. That is too large for my needs. Thanks for your help!

you could train it to be dwarf. regular root and top growth pruning will keep it small. Basically like how bonsai growers keep normally huge trees small. Even dwarf trees can become pretty big if left alone.

im sure someone knows where to find meyers on dwarf rootstock.

Look for Bambu Rabbit on this site and send him an email; I'm sure if anyone knows, he will know. Rabbit is a bit of a curmudgeon; but you can live with that if you know in advance.
