Lemon Tree Planting and Care

Who doesn’t want a lemon tree in their yard? If you are a citrus lover and want to plant some citrus trees, start with lemon. The plants can be small while still being durable and can live for a long time. They are some of the easiest fruit trees to grow and care for. While lemon trees may be low maintenance, how you care for them is still important.

Planting

To care for a lemon tree, you need to plant lemon seeds. Just because you plant seeds from a type of lemon doesn’t mean you will get that type of tree. Some times you will, sometimes you won’t. Lemon seeds are easy to grow, but they take time.

First, take a lemon, slice it, and remove the seeds. Wash the seeds. Never plant seeds with pulp or sugar on them. A fungus may develop, and this could lead to the development of a fungus that may kill the seed.

Plant the wet seed in moist soil and then place plastic wrap over it. The plastic wrap will keep the soil moist and raise the soil’s temperature. Set the pot somewhere warm with a lot of light. Once the seedlings pop up, you can remove the plastic. When the seedlings have several leaves on the stem, then you can transport them into larger plots. When you plant your seedlings, keep in mind that lemons like slightly acidic soil. If you need to make your soil more acidic, you can add lime or sulfur to change the pH.

Water

For the tree to grow and produce lemons, you need to water it. Lemons like water. They really like water, but you shouldn’t over-water them. Keep the soil moist. If the soil is soggy, then root rot can develop, and that can cause the plant to die. To be sure, take your forefinger and stick it into the soil. If your fingertip is wet, then you don’t have to water it. If it is not, then water it until the pot overflows.

It is possible to grow a lemon tree inside, and if you do, make sure the pot has good drainage and mist the plant to keep the leaves moist.

Temperature and Fertilizer

Lemon trees like a lot of sun and warm temperatures. They like a temperature between 50 and 80 degrees. During the winter, if it gets colder than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, if possible, take the plant inside. The humidity level should also be at 50 percent or higher. You should also fertilize your lemon tree regularly during the growing season. Between spring and fall, fertilize your tree once every two to three weeks. A fertilizer high in nitrogen works best.

Storing TShirt Treasures in Heaven

As believers, we know that our lives are meant to bring Glory to God. But oftentimes it can be difficult to manifest that goal in our everyday lives. So the leadership team here at Christian Shirts and More set out on a mission to find ways to help make this a little easier. While t-shirts might not be the first tool you think of when finding a way to share your faith, it felt to us like a simple way to brand ourselves as Christians, which, can help lead us into conversations that we might not otherwise have had. This desire turned into reality and thus, our mission was born which is, “to assist individuals in the sharing of their faith in Jesus Christ by providing an opportunity for witnessing and identification with other believers”.

 

Why is it important to share our faith?

If you have accepted Christ as your savior, or perhaps you are shopping for somebody who has made this decision, sharing the Gospel is considered the great honor of our lives. Matthew 28:19 says, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Not only are we commanded to make disciples by sharing our faith, but as Christians, this is how we find our joy.

How do we share our faith?

By now you know that we share our faith through producing and wearing T-shirts and other apparel to help draw attention to the fact that we are unashamed of our belief in Jesus Christ. But we don’t want it to end there. The vision behind this company is to ensure you have a tool to accomplish our life mission of bringing Glory to God and that starts with a conversation. Here are some helpful ways we have found to use our Tshirts as witnessing tools.

  • Wearing it to work. Thank you Millenials for helping to bring a casual and more relaxed wardrobe into the office these days.
  • Wearing it to sporting events. You’d be surprised how many people will comment, “Can you pray that we win today?” When noticing your shirt.
  • Wearing it to Church. Christians need encouragement from one another. Christians who may be struggling with how to share their faith can easily be encouraged by noticing that their fellow brother or sister in Christ is unabashedly ready to proclaim their faith also.

 

Sometimes all it takes is a planting of a small seed. You may never even know the impact you might have on somebody by simply wearing a t-shirt but no matter what you wear, we charge you to boldly step out in faith and find ways to bring glory to God. Let us know how we might be able to assist you in that endeavor.

Your friendly Tshirt creators in Christ,
