This nutritious grass grows best in soils that are loamy or clay. The soil should be well-draining, too. Barley Grass prefers soils that are between a 6 and 8 on the pH scale. Further, this herbal grass could benefit from nitrogen fertilization. While salty soils are tolerated well, a pH below 5 won’t be tolerated and can prevent healthy growth.

After, the sprouts get a bit older you can remove the cover. But, make sure to keep the soil moist and make sure that the water can drain. Also, direct sunlight would be a good idea for nice, healthy plant growth. Once your grass is about six or so inches tall, you can harvest your grass. Although you can technically harvest earlier if you are ready to use the barley grass, the timing is all about your yield.

Lemon Peel Benefits: Growing ConditionsLemon Peel Benefits: Growing Conditions

Lemon trees require a warm climate and are quite sensitive to the cold. The tree will become inactive below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Also, the fruit dies after being exposed to lower than 28 degrees Fahrenheit for about 30 minutes. So, they will need protection from frost, which can be helped by ensuring that your tree has enough water. Additionally, lemon trees should be provided with full sunlight. While these trees are temperature sensitive, they are able to tolerate many different types of soils. However, these trees will prefer soil that is slightly acidic and well-draining. Further, you should plant your tree in a hole that is slightly shorter than the root ball. Then, replace the dirt and tamp firmly. 

For those in the United States, anyone that doesn’t live in a climate like Florida or California may want to plant your lemon tree indoors. As long as the pot is fairly large and the soil is well draining, the tree should be comfortable as an indoor plant. However, a typical lemon tree has the potential to grow to be 20 feet tall, so you will likely want to prune your tree as it gets too large.

However, the lemons require hot summers to develop the fruit. So, it may be less likely for an indoor tree to produce fruit if you don’t bring your plant outside in the summer. Luckily, there are dwarf lemon tree options, like the Meyer lemon, that are more likely to bear fruit. Since your plant will be inside, it is unlikely that pollinators, like bees, butterflies, and other bugs, can get to your plant. Instead, you can use a paintbrush or cotton swab to rub pollen within the flower. This increase your chance of fruit and lead to a better harvest.
