My #lemontree that was #grownfromseed that almost died the year it snowed for 5 days (not a normal for my #southgeorgia area) has made a huge #comeback with lots of #newgrowth it lost its height it had but thats ok it will regrow height wise. Im so proud of all my grown from seed #fruittrees
#lemontree #appletree #elephantears #lilies #spearmint #silktree and prob a few other things as my jungle keeps growing. Tad messy ohhh well.. Its mine. 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 👍
#lemontree #grownfromseed has loads of #newgrowth im still sad that the year b4 last yrs snow killed it back almost all way but im thrilled that shes now double her width she was and shes growing better.
This was #amazing my phone got hot so I couldn't take more of it process.. #butterfly #chrysalis #newborn #giantswallowchrysalis #giantswallowtailbutterfly #swallowtailbutterfly i wish I could have gotten more pics of this... On my #lemontree #hostplant
Well the #lemontree that I thought died during the weird winter we had sure is fighting to make a comback. If you scroll way back you can see how tall it was then it died all way back and started regrowing till now its this. So never give up hope.
So far. Jeff @jeatacake i sure hope I get fruit next year even if its a few or even 2 lol im proud of all the fruit trees I grew from seed. Its a wondrous feeling of success even if I never get fruit. I grew trees lol
A #teenietiny baby #caterpillar on a #lemontreeleaf one day this will be a #beautiful #giantswallowtailbutterfly hard to image something so tiny can get so large and shaped so differently as if by magic xoxo good luck little one on this journey in your life.
Another #lemonstalk on my #lemontree has come up this is the one that looked completely dead no green left at all in main #trunk of #tree and now has multiple babies popping up on all sides. It was so tall #grownfromseed and was #devastated that winter/snow killed it. Im happy mother nature is gving me back my beloved tree. Xoxo
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.
So good news the #lemontree that I thought completely died is actually making a #comeback so im glad i didnt dig it all out. It will take a long while to get as tall as it was but ITS ALIVE!!!! #alive #thrilled
@kari its in a blue barrel the roots are covered well and lower in the barrel was covered with sheet but wind took it mostly off the morning. Its in front of my trailer the side sun rises on. It has less snow on it than most my other plants outdoors. And no we dont Janice its very very very rare like last time anywhere close to this was dec 1989. This time was sleet then snow and more than that by few inches @lovestogarden
Thanks @KariSamuel ill be sad to lose any of them grew them from seeds and next year was most likely gonna finally see fruit hopefully on a few of them. Wish I would have had my greenhouse set up. So much for hopes and plans lol
Its getting taller and taller. Im just letting it do its thing in the #recycled #fridge now made #tree #container has #plants under the tree. #wartsandall #bluesky#sunny #grownfromseed #update #died due to #snow and too much #cold it couldnt recover sad to see my biggest #grownfromseed #citrustree die.
It would be great if it does 👍 Will it be ok outside all winter? I had one many years ago in a big pot. I brought it into the greenhouse for winter. Eventually, it got too big so i took a chance with it outside & yep, it died!
It should be ok we have milder winters here but can get nasty freezing. If i have to ill do as much wrapping with a blanket and bubble wrap or something else to help protect as much of it as possible. This almost died last year and survived now its this big and still growing so I have faith it will be ok. @jeatacake sorry yours died
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! 😁
They do have spines ..lol i def know its not a hybrid tree from seed at least. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/thorns-on-citrus-trees.htm and Im proud that I got this to grow from a tiny seed. So bring on the torns lol. Ill figure it out on how to harvest safely hahaha @jeatacake
