Moreover, what temperature can a lemon tree withstand?
Lemon trees prefer warmer climate with acceptable temperature range being between 70 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 38°C) with the best temperature around 85 degrees Fahrenheit (29-30°C). Above 105 degrees (40°C) lemon tree will stop to grow, while below 50 degrees (10°C) lemon tree will go into the dormancy.
Also, how do you protect fruit trees from frost? Bare soil — or soil covered with clear plastic — stores and radiates more warmth. ACES also notes that frost blankets can provide frost protection for fruit trees and small fruits. When you place frost blankets around tree trunks, be sure to anchor them on the ground to trap the soil's radiant heat.
Also to know, do citrus trees need to be covered during a freeze?
Despite some cold tolerance, citrus trees should be covered when freezing weather is expected to reduce shock and increase the chance of survival. Trees younger than three years old especially should be completely covered; keep a frame in place if you live in a frequently cold area.
Should I pee on my lemon tree?
We know that urine can do a plant good. Certain plants (like citrus trees) will absolutely do well if you add urine to their intake. But urine is very high in nitrogen and could potentially "burn" the plant.
