Ouch. Sorry to read that, Strider. Your lemon tree may survive, but it will be in poor condition to produce much fruit for another year...strider3700 wrote:My meyer lemon that I decided to plant in the front yard to dare winter to be cold took a beating back in december on one cold night. All of it's leaves have dropped and the outer tips are dead. The main branches still are green when I scratch them with a finger nail though so I have hopes that it will return when spring finally gets here.
Yes. From "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." Here's a cropped pic of some of the new grapefruit leaves:JJ wrote:is that Monty Python?PeakOiler wrote:The "I'm not quite dead, I'm getting better" potted grapefruit tree in the house is putting out some new leaves.
It's just a baby anyways so I'm not shocked. I've considered digging it up and potting it again but I have faith with a little work and some global warming I can get lemons to grow outside. It started off as a walmart find in it's dead and dying discount section so it's had a hard life. I have faith.PeakOiler wrote:Ouch. Sorry to read that, Strider.

Not a bad call!Post subject: Re: Citrus and Peach trees PostPosted: Sun Nov 29, 2009 3:05 pm
U may need that protection this winter. A pretty smart weather guy that lives in Mexico just south of the Texas border was saying he expects his coldest winter in 20 years...i guess the storm track is going to be pushed further south then normal.
We look to go below 0F around the 10th of Dec... I'm going to bring the container peaches inside the garage this week and cover them with blankets? God knows if this is going to work, but we'll find out!
Good luck with your peaches and other trees, ftt. Don't be too much of a stranger.frankthetank wrote:Not a bad call! It hasn't been that cold up here (low temp -16F), so i think my peaches may come through fine. We have an easy foot of snow on the ground and that is a THICK, ICY foot... lots of water in it. Still might not hit 40F this month up here and will have a hard time hitting 32F. Lots of sun and blue skies lately, so i'll take it.
