Answer: lemon in the flowerbed


Dear Francesco,
lemon trees live well outdoors in Italy in the central southern areas, in the north of the peninsula they need to be covered during the winter, so they are often grown in pots. The size of your flowerbed is perfect for a lemon, as long as the soil it contains is rich and fertile, very well drained; the other feature that your flowerbed should have is to be exposed to the sun, for a good amount of hours every day. So if the soil is good and the location is sunny, the lemon tree can grow in your garden for years, reaching 4-5 meters in height.
