Citrus in lean-to update video

tmc2009November 23, 2012

Here are my citrus in the lean-to. It gets down into the 40's at night with no active heating but warms up to 70 on a bright day here in Nov so far.

I was disappointed not to get a view of the lean-to itself, to see just how it is constructed, sited, etc...

Plants look great though...

just look through Tmc's other videos....he has tons of construction videos of the project.

New England, I notice that you're watering in sips. I think that's going to lead to dead
roots where the soil becomes too dry and then refuses to re-wet. Letting the container dry
is a wise plan, but make sure to thoroughly wet the entire soil volume when you do water.

nice and bright in there. Be careful you keep the roots warm like you mentioned. Leaf drop will happen in a greenhouse just as easily as in the house. We keep our hoop house above 55 all the time and leaf drop is not an issue.

Thanks for the advice Josh and Mike. I'm afraid of soaking them right now. I want to get them on benches and possible get a heating source under them. It's getting down to low 40's at night and quickly gets to upper 60's on a sunny day with out active heating. I don't have it sealed or insulated at tightly as it could be yet so I'm hoping I can get it to retain more heat during the night.

Fabaceae, I just grouped the greenhouse/leanto videos together that you will see the category if you go to the channel page. Thanks for everyones comments.
