If you’re considering which tree to add to your garden, it has to be a lemon tree! Lemon trees are a beautiful addition to your garden and growing lemons can be a very rewarding experience.
The glossy leaves, white flowers, and small to medium-size trees make them an ideal fit for the smallest of garden spaces. Not to mention the fact that they bear fruit almost throughout the whole year, the harvesting of lemons can also be a fun experience for everyone in your household.
Lemon trees are a rich source of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium. These minerals are vital for building & maintaining strong bones, maintaining a healthy heart as well as protecting you against cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Lemons also contain proteins, carbohydrates, fats and antioxidants, which help boost the immune system which further positively impacts your health & wellness.
You will find that lemons love to grow with Basil, Thyme, Cilanto and Rosmary. These herbs, are great for cooking and apart from their added health benefits, they could save you one less trip to the local grocer.
One of the greatest facts yet, is that most insects do no harm to citrus trees! Lady beetles, lacewigs, and praying mantis are among the beneficial insects you may see around outdoor citrus trees. Having a lemon tree will thus contribute positively to the environmental eco-system of your home, giving you a beautiful and healthy garden!
