When we first purchased citrus trees (such as our key lime, Meyer lemon, and others), one of the first questions we got from other gardeners was simply “you're going to keep them inside?”.
In living in western Pennsylvania, the answer was, of course- it will have to be indoors for half of the year.
The second question that then immediately would follow is “how will the flowers get pollinated?” to which I would reply “by me!” (by hand). After often surprising looks all around I would go on to say that hand-pollinating citrus trees is rather easy because, in all honesty, it is!
So in this one, I thought I would share the simple steps on how to pollinate lemon trees and other citrus trees you may have at home!
