Please suggest an indoor lighting setup for a windowless garage

meagan_myers(z7/AR)October 27, 2012

Hello citrus experts. I am new to citrus. I am thinking about putting them in the garage to overwinter, under grow lamps. There is no window in the garage. I have 3 small trees; 2 meyer lemon and one blood orange. Can any of you suggest an appropriate setup to overwinter these trees, even maybe to help them flourish? Thank you!

you could use large CFL bulbs, LED, Metal Halide, or High Pressure Sodium bulbs. or go with a 4' shop light with fluorescent tubes. you'll need a small space heater and a little setup for insulation.
