Growing Hardy Citrus in the Triangle


You don't have to live on the Gulf Coast (or the west coast) to grow delicious citrus. Frank Hyman and a number of others have been growing citrus trees in the Triangle both in-ground or in pots for years. How would you like to grow the most valuable lemon in your own back yard without protection (it's more valuable than Meyer lemon)? How would you like to harvest home grown clementines, kumquats, and yes, even Meyer lemons and others in winter inside your own home? Not to mention the pleasure of fragrant flowers, fragrant leaves and evergreens to decorate for the holidays. Class includes a slideshow, handout of resources and plenty of Q&A time.
