Do I have to transplant an Improved Meyer Lemon Tree into a container so that I can bring it indoors when the temp dips below 30F & what size of container would be ideal for such plant?
I live in Frisco, TX & we purchased an Improved Meyer Lemon Tree a couple of months ago, which I planted in my garden. The plant is about 3.5 feet tall. Upon doing some reading about the tree, I found out that it may not survive the winter in our area. Do I have to transplant it into a container so that I can bring it indoors when the temp dips below 30F & what size of container would be ideal for such plant? Any advice would be grealtly appreciated.
In order to protect it through the Winter freezing weather you'll need to have it in a container that you can bring indoors. The size should probably be about an 18 to 22-inch container in order to maintain the root system that has been growing in your soil. Also it would be helpful for you to have a dolly or some sort of conveyance that you can use to move it because it will probably be heavy.
