QuestionI was wondering if you can advise me on caring for a lemon tree and a blood orange tree indoors. Right now they are in a room with a wood stove and the room doesn't get much sun. Should I move them?



Citrus trees indoors can bloom all winter but they prefer bright sunlight.  If you want to keep them where they are, consider getting one of the grow lights or new LED grow lights. They can give the trees the light they need.  Don’t overwater, as many plants do slow down in their growth during the short days of winter.
