Winter Care of Lemons

RedwingRedwing Posts: 1,395

I have two lemon bushes which I am overwintering in a warm room in front of a large SE facing window. (I don't have a greenhouse.) They are looking good and one has about 20 lemons of various sizes. Both have been flowering and as they are inside I am hand pollinating them. Most of these new fruits are dropping off and not setting. I am keeping the plants very dry as I nearly killed one last year through over watering. Could it be that I am keeping them too dry to set the fruits? I would appreciate people's thoughts on overwintering of citrus. Thanks.

Based in Sussex, I garden to encourage as many birds to my garden as possible.
