Question: I am interested in planting a lemon tree/bush and a lime tree/bush, but I am not sure what part of the yard to plant in. Do they grow in direct sunlight, partial shade, all shade, etc.? Thank you very much for your help. Candice Lange Santa Clara, CA

Answer: Lemons like full sun, but my mother -in-law grows her's in containers in part sun and they still get fruit. So pick the best site, keep them well watered and fertilized and have some lemonade for me!
