No matter what time of year it is, there are times when we want to bring the beauty and gifts from the garden indoors.

    I started some Lemon trees from seed a few years ago. The trees themselves have grown pretty tall, but have yet to produce any flowers or lemons. I live in upstate NY and keep my plants inside during the fall, winter and beginning of spring. What can I do to help my plants produce friut?

    • Kathy Woodard says:

      The number one thing they need is to get more sun… Are they in a very bright area, like a sun room, especially in early spring?
