Growing a Lemon Tree From Seeds at Home

Patricia is someone whose life is centered around family. Each day is one more opportunity to show my loved ones how much they mean to me.

6 years...strong & healthy...all this from just one lemon seed

A Most Exciting Day

Today is a day that marks a momentous occasion in my gardening experience. Today I have planted my lemon tree in the ground. It is so exciting to me as I have coddled and loved on this plant for six years. From one tiny seed has come this amazing tree. Now the wait is on for a lemon which may not come for many years.



Drop down if you will and look at some of the early photos of this lemon tree. I had NO idea that it would turn from a seed to the lovely plant I have now. Yes, I do know the science of growing things but this was like magic to me Give it a try.

About 22 inches tall now....loving the abundant rain we have finally received

growing-a-lemon-tree-from-seeds-at-home

My little lemon tree grown from one seed (it hardly seems possible but it's true) is thriving. It is very happy right now in particular. We are having a dry spell so rain will be welcome. Despite the lack of rain it is a happy little plant.

It is very low maintenance however. I have kept it in semi-shade during its fragile moments as it grows. It is becoming strong and sturdy. I transplanted it into a larger pot a few weeks ago and it is looking better than ever.

I know a lemon is years away but this is thrilling to me....obviously it does not take much to thrill me.

New Photo Op of the Little Lemon Tree

This little lemon tree spent the night in the house last night as we had a 32 degree night...not normal for Almost April in Florida.

Lemony goodness

A favorite citrus fruit is the lemon. Its aroma is reason enough to keep it around but it adds so much flavor to many foods that it is a fruit I keep on hand at all times.

A few months back I purchased some luscious lemons at the local market. One of the ways I use them is in my daily lemon water so I wanted really flavorful ones. These were some of the best of the summer.

For some reason I decided to save the seeds. I had thought about saving them before but just had not done so. I did keep some though for a week or two and then decided to plant them.


Included here too are some fun quotes about lemons and some of the great uses for them.

When life hands you lemonade, don’t try to make lemons.

Let's Not Take This Too Seriously....

When life gives you lemons make grape juice and sit back and watch the world ask how you did it.

Six Month Old Lemon Tree

growing-a-lemon-tree-from-seeds-at-home

Happy Birthday Little Plant

Further down in this article I show an update of the plants...so this one is out of order. Just thought you might like to see what to expect after six months.

Growth can be expedited with a hot house effect if desired but that is not being employed for this little plant.

When life gives you lemons, give them to me, I love free stuff!.

A Learning Curve

Following directions someone gave me, seeds were planted and waiting began.

And more waiting.

Still more.

Nothing happened.

It was time to begin again.

When I returned to the market two weeks later, the very same spectacular lemons were there so once again I stocked up.

As I used them I saved the seeds. This time I soaked the seeds over night in warm water. Then I planted them.

I found out that letting them dry out was my big mistake. Apparently they do not like to be dried out.

A Few of the Seeds that Were Planted Later

growing-a-lemon-tree-from-seeds-at-home

They DID grow...

Again I waited and waited. And, of course, I watered them daily as the potting material dries out very quickly.

The tiny plants shown in the little pots are the result.

This is very exciting to me.

As they continue to grow and flourish I will come back and show you the results.


I am not a professional citrus grower. If you would like professional advice, you may wish to contact someone who specializes in growing citrus fruit

These are just being grown as an experiment really.


Some Uses for Lemons You May Not Know

The Fledgling Lemon Trees

growing-a-lemon-tree-from-seeds-at-home

What You Need to do This at Home

Six or eight lemon seeds

  • Warm water
  • Jar
  • Several terra cotta pots
  • Mix : perlite, vermiculite, potting soil, and a time released fertilizer you can shake into the soil/I had these items on hand but if you do not---You can often find the mix suggested above already in a bag.
  • The fertilizer is usually in a container that allows you to shake out the amount you want into your pots.


A Little Humor...

If life gives you lemons, throw 'em back and yell, "I wanted chocolate."

— unknown

What to do

  • Rinse seeds and place in warm water to soak overnight.
  • Place plant soil you have prepared in a pot.
  • Put two or three seeds in about a half to three quarters of an inch deep.
  • Cover gently.
  • Water.

After this initial process, water daily.

In about ten days you will have sweet little fledgling plants.

Some sources suggest keeping them inside till they germinate. I did not as it has been perfect for them on the porch. Of course when it gets colder they will come inside.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on June 09, 2020:

I thank you for stopping by....I adore my little lemony gal every day. Thanks for sharing your interest g experience. Angels headed your way. ps

Marie Flint from Jacksonville, FL USA on June 03, 2020:

While living in Jacksonville (FL), the previous owner of the last house I lived in with my daughter and her family had left a bunch of potted lemon trees, about ten feet in height each. I couldn't believe it. Why buy these beautiful specimens and then not place them in the ground? The poor things had roots pushing through the holes in the plastic containers in an effort to anchor into the ground for nourishment. I felt sorry for the trees and wanted to get them out of the limiting containers by planting them in the ground, but the trees were very difficult to free--not only from the pot, but from the ground!

We only lived at that house a little over a year, so I wasn't able to do much for those poor lemon trees. I did have other household chores, and I focused on composting and developing the front sidewalk entry so it looked more colorful and a little more symmetrical. There was a lot of work to do.

I truly appreciate your patience with the seeds. I'm sure the lemon deva loves you!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 01, 2019:

It is fun watching it grow from a seed into a tree. It is still small but robust. I am hoping for a lemon next year. Thank you for stopping. Angels are on the way ps

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on November 28, 2019:

This is a great idea and I will definitely try it. I bought a lemon tree in 2009 seven years later we had a lot of lemons but it did not survive the extremely cold weather in 2017.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on August 03, 2019:

That sounds good...I use plant food from our local nursery and so far my little plant is happily growing Hope you have continued success with your lemon tree Angels are headed your way this evening ps

Perspycacious on July 28, 2019:

24 good-sized lemons in 2019, and the two plants have been repotted to larger pots and additional quality soil. We also use drops of liquid plant fertilizer you can obtain at stores where gardening materials are sold.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on July 27, 2019:

O you will be thrilled. I have grown tons of things from seed but this accomplishment outshines all others in my mind. I am so excited and peek at it all of the time to see any signs of a lemon. Let me know how it goes. Thank you for stopping. Angels are headed your way this evening ps

RTalloni on July 26, 2019:

Something about even the word lemon is refreshing and I enjoyed seeing your method of starting trees from seeds. Watching the seedling grow through the years is a neat thing. Knowing that inside tiny little plants is the power to grow at just the right pace is thrilling. Love the fun quotes. You've encouraged me to try doing this and I'm looking forward to trying.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on July 15, 2019:

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit. I am so tickled with my lemon tree I will be so excited to see lemons on my tree. Angels are on the way this evening So sorry for the delay in responding so much is happening with my family ps

Denise McGill from Fresno CA on July 08, 2019:

What a great planting exercise. I've never seen one reach this level of maturity. Terrific. Thanks for sharing.

Blessings,

Denise

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on July 06, 2019:

O Thank you once again for visiting. My little tree is growing growing and I am hopefully maybe next year I will have a lemon. It is healthy and happy but no lemons yet Angels once again are on the way ps

Marlene Bertrand from USA on July 03, 2019:

I enjoy lemons every day with my morning routine. I discard the seeds, because I had not thought about growing a lemon tree from seeds. You have shown that this would be a rewarding project. And, thanks for the excellent tip about soaking the seeds overnight. I think I will try this and look forward to fresh lemons in a few years down the road.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on March 07, 2019:

Awesome I can hardly wait to enjoy fruit from mine---it is so exciting to watch a seed transform into a tree Angels headed your way this afternoon ps

Perspycacious on February 26, 2019:

The lemon trees from my Hub are in their third year of production. I had 6 on one tree and more than 12 on the other. Delicious peel and all. Save seeds and use a good south-facing window along with frequent watering. One crossed with a tangerine that now gives us the peel and sections of a tangerine, but definitely lemon juice!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on February 26, 2019:

Carefully cut back but try to be patient.

Denise Izzo on February 17, 2019:

Help! My tree grown from seed now 12 inches tall with nice thorns. Developed something that made leaves very pale and it stopped growing. But still strong. Can I cut it back to get new shoots? I want lemons!!!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on May 07, 2018:

Tell her to be patient....my little tree has been growing for years.

Sarah lee on May 04, 2018:

My little grand daughter (3) planted lemon seeds the plant has grown But doesn't look like yours she is looking after it so much but I don't think it's a lemon yours looks very good well done x

Jeff on April 13, 2018:

Ours lasted about 4 years before I goofed up. Ants were in the pot and I took it back outside. Lost track of time and it froze. It was about 5 feet tall and we are in PA

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on October 11, 2017:

Thank you good luck with yours...I have used that method too and it works out nicely in most cases. My little tree is happy happy which makes me in turn happy happy.

Angels are on the way. ps

Richard Peej from Leicester Uk on September 20, 2017:

I love your little tree Patricia. I've just removed the husks off some lemon seeds, wrapped them in a moistened paper towel and placed them in a resealable clear plastic bag. I am now putting them somewhere dark and warm and hoping they germinate in about 5 days to a week. I soaked them first for a day. Here's hoping..

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on October 13, 2015:

How cool, Sheila. I am so excited to hear of others sharing this experience ...I can't wait to get home to see mine...I have been away over two weeks and my grandson has been caring for them for me. I have two that are strong and healthy.

It will be fun to share photos of the first lemons.

Thank you for visiting.

Angels are once again on the way to you ps

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on October 10, 2015:

I had to come back and re-visit this hub! I took your advice and planted some lemon seeds. It is now October and I have 3 lemon trees growing in pots on my porch. The largest is about 2 feet tall now! I will be bringing them in soon and hope they make it through the winter inside. I would love to have lemon trees with lemons in a couple of years!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on May 29, 2015:

O I am so excited. It has grown quite a bit. It is time to take another photo of it..it is growing so nicely.

Thank you for visiting Angels are on the way to you this evening ps

Suzanne Day from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on May 22, 2015:

What a great idea, I always like having a lemon tree in the backyard! Thanks for the tip about not drying out the seeds, I've also been guilty of this in the past and wondered why they didn't grow. Voted awesome and up ;)

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on April 15, 2015:

O well, it will be years before they need enough water to make a difference in your personal water usage. And then you could use rain water to water them.

You might really want to give this a try, poetryman :D

Thanks for visiting Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on April 15, 2015:

hi AuFait I updated a few weeks back. Only one survived the winter. And it is growing stronger and healthier each day. I am so excited and plan to plant more seeds soon.

It is fun ...you will feel like a proud Momma.

Angels are on the way to you this morning. ps

poetryman6969 on April 13, 2015:

A nice little project. Unfortunately I am moving to a place where they would fine me for using extra water so I will not get to try this!

C E Clark from North Texas on April 13, 2015:

Sounds like a fun project and a nice conversation addition to your home. Are they still growing well? I once grew a sweet potato into a plant and it was beautiful. So nice to have houseplants that don't cost the earth.

Voted up, UI, and will share with followers. Also pinned to Awesone HubPages.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on March 28, 2015:

Sylvestermouse

Thank you for stopping...I do hope you have a chance to try this. I am getting ready to try limes soon. Why not, right?

Sadly only the one survives as the others got too cold. Even though I had them inside the area was just too cool for them.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Cynthia Sylvestermouse from United States on March 27, 2015:

We love lemons, so growing our own lemon trees seems like wisdom in action. I may well need to give this a shot myself. Thanks for the idea.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on March 27, 2015:

Hi Adventuretravels

I love my honey bunny...it is still a new morning so he is snuggled up beside his Momma while I work. He has to lie next to me and touch me whenever he can.

I hope you have a chance to grow your own little lemon tree. It is quite an adventure. I feel like a Momma as I watch over the one surviving one.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Giovanna from UK on March 26, 2015:

I love lemons. My mum always carried alemon in her handbag in case she needed it! I use it to do everything. I used to grow them too but I haven't in a long time now. I love your honey bunny by the way. Thanks for the angels.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on March 24, 2015:

O yes for sure there are many ways to grow these little trees.

Experimenting will often allow us to discover the way that works best for us. thanks for visiting....I am updating the hub with a new photo this morning...I am so excited that this little plant is doing so nicely.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Demas W Jasper from Today's America and The World Beyond on March 24, 2015:

While you can save the seeds as suggested, there are definite benefits to starting your day with one sixth of a lemon, peel and all (except the seeds.)

Check out Hubs on the subject.

I enjoyed the video's 10 Uses For Lemons. It was informative. Thanks.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on March 23, 2015:

Hi Sheila O it is so exciting. The winter got all but one of them but the remaining one is strong and healthy. I am going to photo it and share so all can see. I am tickled pink

Thank you for visiting Angels are on the way to you this afternoon ps

Sheila Brown from Southern Oklahoma on March 20, 2015:

I love lemons and can't wait to try this! Spring has just arrived, so I will be able to plant the seeds and set them out on my porch. Definitely going to give this a try!

ezzly on January 31, 2015:

Great tip thanks :)

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on January 31, 2015:

You could grow them inside for years. Then worry about what to do with them when they are grown :)thanks for stopping by. More Angels on the way. PS

ezzly on January 31, 2015:

That's a great idea, I want to try this ! But yeah the climate in Ireland may not be so suitable! I try to start my day off with a little lemon in warm water every day so having a fresh supply of lemons would be ideal! Thanks for sharing !!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on January 15, 2015:

I am a bit worried about a couple of them. They are not looking happy right now. I have to move them in and out due to the weather. I hope to show healthy happy plants in the spring.

I am still hopeful they will weather the winter..this is their first winter so I am learning lots.

Angels are on the way to you this afternoon ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 23, 2014:

Hi Deborah

Yes, they are fun to grow and some of the easiest plants I have grown to date from seeds. I hope they make it through the winter so they can become healthy and strong

I plan to buy a lemon tree that is bearing fruit already while I wait for these to grow.

Nice to see you today. Merry Christmas

Angels are on the way to you ps

Deborah Carr from Orange County, California on December 22, 2014:

What an awesome article. We have a lemon tree growing in a pot on our patio, but I never thought about starting one from a seed. I'm sharing this because I am sure some of my other California friends will want to know about this! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 20, 2014:

Hi Growing them in a cold climate would be a challenge. If you had a hot house, they would love that.

I am cautiously optimistic that at least one will grow to maturity.

thank you for visiting.

Angels are on the way to you ps

Susie Lehto from Minnesota on December 19, 2014:

It would be great to have a lemon tree in the backyard, but they would not do too well in this colder climate. I love growing plants from seeds however, it has its own rewards.

Voted and shared. Blessings to you!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 19, 2014:

Well greatstuf You can try. The worst that will happen is that they won't grow. My climate is tropical most of the year too and so far so good.

Angels are on the way ps

Mazlan from Malaysia on December 18, 2014:

Lately I have been planting trees from seeds and my latest project was frangipani or plumeria plants (which I wrote an article here on HP). Your lemon plants grow well from seeds and I think I will give it a try even though our tropical climate may not be too kind to lemon tree!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 18, 2014:

I do so want one of those, Peggy. Lemons are one of my all time favorites. Right now it is much cooler so they are not growing much at all. I think I need to move them inside soon.

I hope they really thrive so that I have at least one good tree from the lot.

Thank you for your wishes. this Christmas is overshadowed some by some medical issues in my family but it will not steal our joy.

Angels are on the way to you and yours and wishing you a very Merry Christmas my friend.

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on December 18, 2014:

This was interesting to read and I enjoyed your videos as well. Your Milo is a handsome fellow! We planted a Meyer's lemon tree in our backyard 2 years ago. The first year it gave us a couple of lemons but this last year...none. Hoping for some fruit next year. Had the same luck with an orange tree. It would be so much fun to actually see your little lemon trees grow, mature and give you some fruit. Hope you will have a Merry Christmas this year. Enjoy each moment!

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 15, 2014:

Hi Vespawoolf They do need sunlight...when I bring mine in I close them in a closet and turn the light on...that will be the case most of the winter and they do not seem to mind.

Hoping you get to try this ...it is such fun to see them grow.

Angels are on the way to you ps

Vespa Woolf from Peru, South America on December 15, 2014:

How exciting that you had success in growing a lemon tree from seeds! I would love to try this, but I don´t know if I get enough sunlight inside my house. Still, it can´t hurt to try. Thank you for sharing your experiment with us.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 15, 2014:

Hi Rachel

My Momma used to have one or two citrus trees in our living room until they got too big for that space any longer. I thought it was the coolest to just walk over and pull a lemon off to use for tea or lemonade.

Angels are on the way to you ps

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on December 14, 2014:

My sister has a lemon tree in her parlor that a friend she has from Florida gave her several years ago. She keeps it in her family room in front of the sliding glass doors and she does get lemons.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 14, 2014:

I do understand, Rachel. It is such an exciting experience to see the new plant pop through the soil.

Angels are on the way to you this morning. ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 14, 2014:

Hi Peg

Hoping for great results too. My nursery owner friend has Meyer lemon trees that are already bearing fruit and I just know one of them will soon be mine (while I wait for mine to grow).

Angels are on the way to this morning. ps

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on December 13, 2014:

I love growing things so I'm sure I will enjoy watching them grow. I will let you know how it turns out.

Blessings to you.

Peg Cole from Northeast of Dallas, Texas on December 13, 2014:

How I miss the tropical climate of Florida where things grow so bountifully. I've been saving seeds, too, and it was great to learn that they need to soak overnight before being planted. Good luck on your lemon trees and I hope they bear fruit as delicious as their source.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 13, 2014:

You know, you could do this with kidoes at school, Rebecca. You are still teaching, right? If I had known we would have done it for sure. We grew pumpkins and beans, of course, and sunflowers..Kids love it.

Have a lovey Saturday.

Many Angels are on the way to you and yours. ps

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on December 13, 2014:

Wow! I am surprised at how quickly germinated. You have inspired me to try it. Now where is that lemon I bought?

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 13, 2014:

That is an important question, Jackie. No, do not let them dry. That was the mistake I made the first time I tried this.

Just remove them, rinse in warm water, and then plant them and then watch eagerly for them to grow.

Good luck.

Angels are on the way to you this morning. ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on December 13, 2014:

Hi Rachel

You will feel like a new Momma as you watch these babies grow.

I have to really baby them right now since the weather is fluctuating so much but I am not ready to bring them in for the winter yet.

Hopefully you will come back and let me know how they grow.

Angels are on the way to you this morning ps

Jackie Lynnley from the beautiful south on December 12, 2014:

I love growing new things; so I will try it. Can you use the seeds right from the lemons or do they need to dry out a little? Lemon is said to be a cancer preventative so I add it to my water too. Up and sharing.

Rachel L Alba from Every Day Cooking and Baking on December 12, 2014:

Oh, I can't wait to try this. Every year in January I look for something to do. I will do this for sure. I love seeing those little plants come up and I love lemons. Thanks a lot.

Sally Gulbrandsen from Norfolk on September 12, 2014:

I have had a lemon tree for a few years. The first year it bore fruit but they never matured as they did not get enough time before winter crept on. When I lived in South Africa, a lemon tree was oh such a beautiful thing but this poor lemon tree of mine, has been through some rough patches and I keep on giving it yet another chance!

If it does not sort itself out soon, I might have to do more than just talk to it. I might plant some seedlings right next to it:)

I enjoyed reading this hub. thank you.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on September 03, 2014:

Hi Breakfastpop Thanks for stopping by. It is indeed a very exciting time for me. I hope they grow into strong trees that give me luscious lemons.

Angels are on the way to you this evening. ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on September 03, 2014:

Yes Genna...I have thought of growing some inside and definitely will be keeping these little ones inside this winter. I am sure they will like the warm environment inside as much as they are enjoying it outside.

Hi Dr Bill thanks for stopping by. I am thrilled to see them doing as well as they are ...hoping for the best.

Angels are on the way to you this evening. ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on September 03, 2014:

The short answer to that question, Brie, is no. Of course you will need to be cautious with the cool weather especially when your trees are babies such as these. I have some 'teenage' lemon trees in the yard and they do not seem to mind the freezing temps we get in the winter ...granted we do not have extended periods of freezing weather but we do have cold spells.

Consult your zones and see what the recommendations are but I think you too can have baby trees growing like mine. : Wishing you the best.

Hi Theresa...You know I love your name...my sister is named Teresa (she spells it without the 'h' ) and we are very close.

I know. Lemons are just amazing fruits...they are good for us as well as being such a yummy food, how lucky we are.

I hope all is well with you and yours. I think of you often.

Sending you many Angels this evening ps

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on September 03, 2014:

Hi Bill I will just have to grow you one and when it gets a couple of years old I will send it to you :D

More Angels are headed out to you all in Washington. :D Always nice to see you my friend.

Patricia Scott (author) from North Central Florida on September 03, 2014:

Hi Boutiqueshops I am so excited. Today there are even more little ones growing!!

Yes you can do this. I know we can buy a tree that is a few years old and get lemons much quicker but it will not be this much fun.

Lemon tree, very pretty!!

Ronald E Franklin from Mechanicsburg, PA on September 02, 2014:

I'm pretty sure you can't actually grow lemon trees here in Pennsylvania. But I may plant some seeds in pots just for the fun of having my very own lemon plants. Thanks for the idea!

Faith Reaper from southern USA on September 02, 2014:

Hi there, my sweet friend,

What a lovely hub here you have shared with all this day! Oh, I just love lemons, as they are SO beneficial to our health in more ways than I had ever realized until recently!

I love your video and I need to learn how to do a video on YouTube! LOL

I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE growing a Lemon Tree from seedlings ... how wonderful!

Up and more and tweeting, pinning, G+ and sharing

Love and many Angels to you this day and everyday, precious heart,

Theresa aka Faith Reaper

Genna East from Massachusetts, USA on September 02, 2014:

Your little lemon plants are doing well, thanks to your TLC. I was thinking about growing one indoors since we live in New England. Did you plan on trying this as well? Florida is ideal for citrus, depending on the area. I've heard they require a lot of misting, indoors. Thank you for sharing this with us.

William Leverne Smith from Hollister, MO on September 02, 2014:

What fun! Love the images. Thanks for sharing! ;-)

Brie Hoffman from Manhattan on September 02, 2014:

Well good morning my friend! Good to see you. This is something we won't be doing here in Olympia. We don't do well in the lemon department in this country...cool to hear your voice. :) Angels heading your way.

Well now this gives me hope! I live in South Texas and I was growing a Mexican lime tree until it actually snowed here in Christmas 2004 and killed it. I didn't think you could grow citrus trees from seed unless you grafted two varieties together - one for the hardiness and one for the sweetness. I'll have to try again! Thanks!
