I live in the south of England, 3 yrs ago we bought a dwarf lemon for the patio, it is planted in a large pot & is at present inside due to frost etc. It has decided to go crazy with flowers and has set many lemons:

What do I feed it with?
When should I prune?
How long for the fruit to ripen? (my gin & tonic is waiting)!

I should say that I am to gardening what agent orange is to foliage.

Thanks. Have a nice Christmas.

terms, nitrogen produces lush green growth, phosphorous helps strengthen stems and produce flowers, and potassium keeps the root system healthy. terms, nitrogen produces lush green growth, phosphorous helps strengthen stems and produce flowers, and potassium keeps the root system healthy.
