Water the lemon tree daily in summer
To avoid waterlogging, you should ensure proper drainage in the plant pot. This is actually not difficult, you just need to add a little expanded clay to the lemon earth and put a layer of pebbles on the bottom of the pot. In addition, there should be no reservoir in the planter or on the planting base. Even if waterlogging is less than ideal, you can water your lemon tree daily during the growing season until the water comes out of the planting hole again. Heavily dried out plants that have not been watered for several days, on the other hand, should be taken out of the plant pot and dipped with the entire root ball in a bucket filled with water. Little is poured in winter.
Tips & Tricks
Like almost all citrus trees, the lemon tree does not tolerate calcareous water. Therefore, always use lime-free water for watering, ideally rainwater. Tap water should be able to stand for at least a week.
