Lemon Tree Update

For those of you following the progress of my lemon tree (grown from a supermarket lemon seed), here is the latest. I still can鈥檛 believe that it鈥檚 actually sprouted and growing in the U.K. They鈥檙e not supposed to grow here! 馃崑 馃嚞馃嚙 馃グ
Do they attract rats? Someone told me that before

[@359674,Nebula] I don鈥檛 honestly know, but they would be suicidal rats as I鈥檝e also got these:

I've seen a kemon tree grown outside at Osterley Park House and it has fruit on it. But that is the only one.

[@1119351,meggie] It鈥檚 very fulfilling and rewarding isn鈥檛 it? I just do it by trial and error mostly - I even had to check online to make sure it was a lemon tree and not some sort of weed!
Are you going to have a go at growing one?

[@477979,Oneofthestormboys] no I have nowhere to put it as the garden is full of fruit trees, vegetabke patches and flowers. But if I had a spare corner I would.

[@1119351,meggie] If this one survives, I鈥檓 going to keep it pruned as a bush and keep it inside I think. Someone told me that if they鈥檙e caught up in temperatures of zero or less then they die鈥

My friend has grown some interesting things in her garden the last few years that wouldn't typically grow there, but then the seasons have been doing funny things!
