According to the US Department of Agriculture, all adults should eat about 1.5-2.5 cups of fruit daily. Although today it’s easy to buy all the products you need in a nearby supermarket, it’s still much healthier to grow plants yourself.gardening,nutrition,science,gardening,cool stuff,gardening,home

1. Tangerines

Tangerines are evergreen plants that grow about 10-15 feet tall. If you want to grow a tangerine tree yourself, you should take into account the following tips:

  • Place the trees in a well-lit spot but not in direct sunlight. Use well-draining soil and water it often, but don’t make it too soggy.
  • It’s better to use seeds from fresh fruit as they are more viable, and plant them in spring or early summer.
  • When the seedling is large enough, repot it into a larger container with some fresh potting mix.

Seed-grown tangerines may take anywhere from 4 to 7 years to flower and fruit. Flowering usually occurs in spring with fruit forming in the summer and ripening by early autumn.

2. Lemons

You can easily grow lemons from fruit seeds by putting them directly in soil and following these simple rules:

  • Plant at least 5-10 seeds at one time in case some of them don’t sprout. It’s better to choose plump-looking seeds from a fresh lemon.
  • Don’t forget that lemon trees love water so keep the soil damp by watering it about 2-3 times a week.
  • Lemon seedlings will require 10-14 hours of sunlight while grown trees need at least 8 hours.
  • If you can see roots through the drainage holes in a pot, it’s time to replant the tree into a bigger container.

It may take about 5 years for the tree to produce fruit, and in some cases, you’ll have to wait up to 15 years.>>>>READ MOREgardening,nutrition,science,gardening,cool stuff,gardening,home
