The lemons trees

I have two citrus trees; I bought one of them, the second is a pip which has grown and that I bud. They are in 20 inches wood pots, in a mixed 1/3 vegetable mould, 2/3 loam. I water them twice a week, with a 6 litter watering can. I use some NPK 15-15-15 fertilizer, the easiest to find to buy. Be carefull, lemon trees don't like freeze; them, you'll have to let them inside during the winter. Mine are in the garage; during the summer, they're outside of course.

My yearly harvest contains 5 and 7 kg. I do it during the winter. I use it for cocktails, jelly, and they are very perfumed.

Lemons contain a lot of C vitamins, and, indeed, they are very good for gastric acidities.
