|You'll be taking a chance if you plant your lemon tree outdoors in Lubbock. It won't recover after a hard freeze and will be damaged by a light freeze. I'd suggest you continue to keep it in a container and move it indoors during the winter months. If it's getting to large to move, try pruning it back to a more manageable size.
