Hello, my name is Nicholas Staddon, I'm with Monrovia, and today we're gonna talk about how to feed your lemon tree. So one of the big trends today is fruit in the garden and in the house because lemons you can actually have growing inside your house as well. I call them migrating plants, bring them indoors in winter in a container and then put them back out on the patio during the summertime. So ways to fertilize the plant, if you have them in the ground outside a couple of three things you can do. You can use a water soluble fertilizer, comes with a handy dandy scoop that tells you how much to put in a half a gallon or a gallon or my favorite way is actually with a granular fertilizer. Now if this plant is outside in your garden remember you need to fertilize all the way out to the drip line, that's the area that the canopy of the tree covers but fertilize about 4 times a year, if in the container read the instructions carefully, you'll probably do it maybe just a little bit less. Lemons are always doing something, they're evergreen, they're blooming, they're setting fruit so they always need a whole bunch of food. Now the other way and I've used this very successfully is using an organic fertilizer and that would be fish emulsion or sea kelp. You can use it actually as a folia feeder or you can put it down straight directly into the soil. However you use fertilizer you will be guaranteed a fantastic crop like this of lemons. This is Nicholas Staddon with Monrovia on how to fertilize your lemon tree.
