Meyers lemon check-up
I got a potted Meyers lemon tree in May. It's been on my balcony facing east/northeast.
Since May it's doubled in size (or more!) and seems healthy. It has three big lemons that are just starting to turn pale. It feels like I've been waiting forever.
The weather in SC turned cool a couple weeks ago (50s and 60s at night.) It just started new shoots, which I'm guessing are blooms (fun!) See photos.
I think it's outgrowing the pot. I didn't expect it to grow so fast. It's currently in a container 18" in diameter. Any tips on repotting?
I'm concerned that the branches are weak. There's no real trunk like a tree. It's very bushy. Is there a way make it grow stronger or taller?
Any suggestions? I'm so proud of my little tree!
Thanks for taking a look.
