There is very little useful information out there on growing bergamot in containers, and even less ways of getting them! Can anyone share their experience with this tree (grafted or not)?
I would really love to get a bergamot, even if I have to grow it from seed. I love unique plants and I also love earl grey, but most of all I love the smell of orange blossoms! The problem is that about $40 is my limit, and it seems like when you can find the trees they cost $45 + shipping. Sadly seeds have been impossible to find. Any tips on finding a tree or seeds?
Really I need to know if I should I be pursuing this tree at all. Are they good plants? I'm interested in them for smelling the flowers and smelling the fruit and maybe making earl grey tea and bergamot "lemonade". My lime and plumeria spend summer outside and come in under lights for the winter (in Colorado) - would that satisfy a bergamot?
Any information as all would be wonderful!
