Wintering my Meyer lemon
I have a 3 year old meyer that is about 4.5 feet tall and healthy.
It managed to bear 8 mature lemons by Thanksgiving day last year. I wintered it last winter in a heated garage that has a couple of skylights and a 4 foot 4 bulb flourecent lamp positioned over it connected to a timer that would allow the light to come on for 12 hours a day. I did not allow the temp in the garage to drop below 40F. By mid Feb. all the leaves dropped.
Once spring came along, and the tree was outdoors, it did very well filling out new foilage but never bloomed.
I would like to find a place in NJ that I could rent a space in a hot house to keep it healthy or find a generous person that would take it in
to help it out. I am willing to pay $$ so this tree does well.
Can anybody give me advice? Thank you
