I potted the plant in a large container. I (or rather my husband) drilled holes in the bottom of the container, as the tree prefers good drainage. I added some rocks to the bottom of the pot to help with the drainage. I then added 2/3 organic potting mix and 1/3 compost from my compost bin. I then gave it a good watering. I'm happy with my new little fruit tree - and the blooms give off such a sweet, intoxicating fragrance!
I also recently planted four Red-Stemmed Malabar Spinach plants. I needed to pull down my dead pea plants, and wanted to replace them with another plant that could use the trellising. While I was at the Round Rock Garden Center picking up my organic potting mix for the Meyer Lemon, I spotted the Malabar Spinach. I've never grown Malabar, which isn't truly a spinach, but rather a basella rubra. It is known for being a heat-loving, vining plant that produces bountiful harvests - it sounded perfect for my veggie beds.
I tore out the Mammoth Melting Sugar Peas and placed the four Red-Stemmed Malabar Spinach plants along the trellis on the left side of Veggie Bed #3. I love veggie plants that have a high ROI (return on investment) and have high yields with little work. I think this veggie plant is going to fall into that bucket. I'm looking forward to large harvests of greens later this summer!
