I just purchased my first house and am trying to start getting some fruit trees and vegetable plants growing in my backyard. I just got a lime tree and a bunch of cucumber and tomato plants but wanted to try my hand at something a bit bigger such as a lemon tree. I have looked around the forum but cant really seem to find the answer to my questions as I am a newbie. Also I would like to get an avocado tree same questions apply if anyone knows. I live in los angeles
What type of lemon tree should I plant?
How much space do I need?
What do I have to do to keep the plant healthy?
When should I plant?
Any good books that tackle issues such as this?
What size should I buy it at...Should I get one in 3, 5 gallon?
Thanks for the help!
