Free lemon tree

So, a while back I wrote this post about a deal with Spring Hill plants where you get $20 off your first order. I ordered an little lemon tree w/pot. It was priced at $19.99 so I got it free plus shipping ($7.99). It came today. The deal is still going on here, so I thought I would report to you my satisfaction with the product. Here is what the ad for the lemon tree looked like:

Here is what mine looks like:

Obviously the size and the lack of lemons is expected. Of course they send you a seedling and not the full grown tree! However, if you click on my pictures you can see that a lot of the leaves have been chewed up by some type of pest. Not optimal.

Still, not all the leaves are chewed, and hopefully the pest did not come with it.

If I had to do it over again, I would have gotten the lemon tree without the pot which was only $12.99. The pot in their ad is NOT like the cheap-o plastic one they sent to me. I could have bought a pot and soil for much cheaper than $7.

Overall, I can't complain about my lemon tree for $8. I only hope that Nebraska will be gentle on my mini-citrus. Right now she is freezing her little lemon tush out in front of my apartment.

  2. You probably should get some frogs to eat the pests!
    Tell your readers to come to my website to buy their book. It is so much cheaper than!
