Lemon Tree - Outdoor question.


Our son gave us a Meyer Lemon Tree for Christmas.
It's in a big tub 16" high and 16" in diameter. We estimate
that it's maybe 12 gallon tub.
We plan on putting outside around the beginning of
May.
Right now it's in our kitchen window where it gets a great
amount of Sun each day. It's doing great and has more than
20 lemon buds in various sizes.

My question is -- can it
go in full sun or dappled sun? We have both.

We plan on leaving it in the container.
We have an underground sprinkler system, but still give our plants
that we have in containers extra water in hot weather. We'll do the
same for this tree...

Also, we have a pond and use the filter water
each week to fertilize the plants and flowers all around the yard
and plan on doing the same for the lemon tree.

We love this tree and want the best for it... it's so fun.
Does anyone have one, and do you have it in direct sun?
We live in Zone 7.

Yikes, just looked up tub sizes...it's actually only 7 gallons.

This is it at Christmas...
We have since trimmed it out some.

Yes, it can take full sun. They like iron occasionally. Think you already know it has to come back inside during the winter.
