The humble lemon tree is not to be underestimated and a full proof variety that has a great fruit yield and good compact size is the Meyer Lemon.

Make sure your lemon is kept well fed as they are big feeders. There are many options in your local garden centre including organic ways to feed your lemon tree. I find a good dose of organic sheep pellets will give strong leaf growth turning yellow leaves green in weeks. An application of weak Epsom salts can be effective too. Keep any grass or lawn away from the base of your citrus and mulch around the base of your tree.
