All Season Plants



Lemon (Nimbu)

Responsive image Lemons are more cold-sensitive than all other citrus trees. Due to this cold sensitivity, lemon trees should be planted near the south side of the home. Lemon trees need protection from frost. Growing them near the house should help with this. Lemon trees also require full sunlight for adequate growth. While lemon trees can tolerate a range of soils, including poor soil, most prefer well-drained, slightly acidic soil. Lemon trees should be set slightly higher than ground. Therefore, dig a hole somewhat shallower than the length of the root ball. Place the tree in the hole and replace soil, tamping firmly as you go. Water sufficiently and add some mulch to help retain moisture. Lemon trees require deep watering once weekly. If necessary, pruning may be done to maintain their shape and height.

Now it is very easy to grow your own lemon tree. You can take a developed small plant from the plant nursery and grow in your kitchen garden.

Papaya Fruit Tree

You should plant several seeds per pot to ensure germination. Under full sunlight, seedlings may emerge in about two weeks. Plants can be set out after they are a foot tall and spaced 8 to 10 feet apart. The seedlings will flower after five or six months. When considering the best papaya growing conditions in the home landscape, don't forget about planting location.

The best place to plant a papaya is on the south or southeast side of a house with some protection from wind and cold weather. Papayas also grow best in full sun. Papayas like well-drained soil, and because of shallow roots, growing papaya trees will not tolerate wet conditions.

Almond Tree

Responsive image When growing almond trees, it's helpful to know that the trees don't tolerate overly wet soil and are extremely susceptible to spring frost. They thrive in mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers in full sun. If your region doesn't fall within these parameters, it's unlikely an almond tree will set fruit for you.

Additionally, very few varieties of almond tree are self fertile, and therefore need cross pollination for fruit production, so you'll need to plant at least two trees. If space is at a premium, you can even plant two in the same hole, wherein the trees will grow together and intertwine, allowing the flowers to cross pollinate. Almond trees are deep rooted and should be planted in deep, fertile and well-draining sandy loam. Almond trees should be planted 19 to 26 feet apart and irrigated despite the fact that the trees are drought tolerant.
