Lemon tree has bounced back from the near snow death it had still not near as tall as it was but its got loads of #newgrowth on her. She was #grownfromseed a #fruittree and one day or year soon she will bloom. Takes forever to get fruit from seed grown fruit trees but worth it to try anyways cus #foodforfutureuse plus growing more trees is 👍

Me too @daniels this was special to me a grown from seed that if it had not died back would have been ready to flower this year. I was excited about that and so devastated it died back. It was very tall and so healthy. But i couldnt protect it in our surprise 5 inches of snow we never ever get. Southern Ga its rare that it snows let alone that much.

It should be ok we have milder winters here but can get nasty freezing.

You might need that ladder sooner if you get a cold snap, but hopefully not! No worries about that thing of mine. Had it about 8 years. Despite growing to about 7 ft+, it never flowered, never mind bore fruit, so it was no no great loss. At least I didn't get stabbed anymore by its 1 inch long spines that it had! 😁
