Via Duffy’s in Italy.
Some of my favorite memories involve citrus trees: walking to pick tangerines with my grandmother, shaking the lemon tree in Nicaragua to make the ripe fruit fall, using oranges as basketball. A result of being a pseudo-Florida resident. My parents also have those memories of tag through orange groves, and sinking an ATV in a muddy part of another grove. I tease my husband because he hates to peel oranges, and I consider myself an expert. All those summer spent in tropical climates have given me a love of citrus.
Citrus groves are a common site in Florida and other tropical climates, but what about those of us that live in areas where the temperature drops too low in the winter? Enter the potted citrus plant. When winter strikes, you can easily move the plan near a south facing window. Move it out after the danger of frost has passed and you’ll have a little tree dripping with lemons or limes. Kumquats and meyer lemons are especially easy to grow in pots. Here’s some citrus garden inspiration to get you motivated!
