First One - now what :)
Just ordered my first citrus, a dwarf meyer lemon from four winds. I ordered the 3 year old tree to try and give me a headstart.
This will be in a container year round and move in an out as necessary with the weather. I have a south facing patio for the outdoor periods and a window behind it for the indoor periods.
The nursery suggested starting in a 12" nursery container. Is that the general consensus on best pot size for that size tree? I want to purchase the pot this weekend so i am ready when it arrives.
Also, would you go with gritty mix, 5-1-1, or something else for the medium? I have ingredients for both after an exhaustive search last year. Seems like gritty is slightly favored here, but i havent had a chance to fully research on here.
