Lemon Tree Care

Lemon trees grow best in extremely warm climates, where they are harvested for their delicious fruit. The trees are smaller in size, and their lemons add a splash of color to the surroundings. For best results, lemon trees should be planted after the last frost.
Apply 1 cup of ammonium sulfate to the soil for each year the tree has been growing. For example, a three-year old tree requires 3 cups of ammonium sulfate, which should be given over three to four applications throughout the year.
