Hi! This is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment we're going to talk about how to grow lemon trees indoors. Now lemon trees are a delight and whether you live in a warm climate and you can leave them outdoors year round. Or you live in a cool climate where you have to put 'em indoors, they're really easy to grow. And the materials that you're going to need are a lemon tree start, a container, some gravel, and compost or potting soil mix. I like to use good sandy compost-gravel mix so there's good drainage. The key is you want good drainage in your containers. So step one, take your container and fill it three quarters full with compost, with potting soil, compost and gravel mix. At times that's the best mix 'cos it's got good drainage. I want to fill that almost to the top. Step two, take the lemon tree plant and put it into the pot. Step three, cover with your soil mixture so that the roots are covered but the actual stem is exposed. Step four, put it in the sunniest window that you can find. Lemons need lots of sun. So give 'em artificial light if you've got a nice light inside or make sure that it's in a really sunny window in the house. And a lot of times if it's an afternoon sun, it might burn it. So make sure that it's the morning sun or not too intense of heat, too. And once you've followed those steps, you can have a great lemon tree in your house.
