5th May 2017. After what seems like eons, my lemon tree finally flowered! :). The tree is located next to my compost area, hence the blue Garbage to Garden Composting Project Compost Bin which is shown in the background in the photo below. The lemon plant was bought as a lowland lemon plant that can withstand the hot tropical lowland temperatures.
I guess the lemon tree was planted some 4-5 years ago, don’t quite remember. However the location of the tree is not optimal: blocked from the sun on one side by a metal garden shed and on the other by the banana plant.
So far it has been only the single bunch of flowers, hopefully others will be coming out too. I am not too hopeful that if these existing flowers develop into fruits, that the branch can support the fruits where it is.
Fingers crossed, other flowers will be appearing soon, hopefully on branches which are stronger.
