I have a Meyers lemon. It lives in the ground in my backyard when the oaks
have leaves, and moves to a pot in a SE window when the nights get cold in
Yes, I repot it and replant it every year. I do this mostly because I
couldn't keep it adequately watered in its pot in full sun. (my
houseplants get watered no more than once a week.)
It loses a lot of leaves every time I replant it from pot to ground or
ground to pot. Especially when I repot it and bring it inside in the fall.
I don't know whether this is due to disturbing the roots, due to changes
in temp and humidity, or just seasonal. I've decided to simply accept it
as a 'feature' of growing this plant. It's incredibly tough and always
re-grows. I usually get a few lemons each year.
