The popular Meyer Lemon is so hardy, you can grow it indoors or outdoors. Meyer lemons tend to be more productive than true lemons, even when young.
With its vivid yellow-orange fruit and glossy evergreen foliage, it will quickly become your all-time favorite, making a beautiful addition to any space! Meyers are naturally sweeter, less acidic and juicier than regular lemons, so lemonade is a cinch. This cultivar can be planted outdoors in the zones specified, otherwise, Meyer Lemons do best in a sunny patio or inside greenhouse. Meyer Lemons prefer well-drained soil and 50% or more sun.

Once your Meyer Lemon Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.
Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.
Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.
We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.
Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.
Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order and the destination it is being shipped. Please see the chart on the Shipping Info page to get an exact amount. We frequently have a free shipping promotion to help you save!
Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is just above the ground level.
Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.
Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.
A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.
To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your George Tabor Azalea, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!

Ordered April 29th. Received today May 4th, with baby lemons already growing on the tree! So excited to grow lemons for the first time. Thanks!
I bought 1 of these for indoors. It arrived with some breakage from shipping but is a beautiful tree. I have only had it in my home for a few weeks but it seems to be healthy and ready for the growing season.
Bought 2 for my patio pots. I bought the smaller size and was very happy when they showed up with baby lemons on the trees. I look forward to watering my trees and watching my lemons grow! Ordered in April. Enjoy!
