I was given a lemon tree (pictured) which is about 1.2 metres tall. It's currently in small yellow pot depicted that has edges of approximately 16cm in length.
Ultimately I want to plant it in my garden, but I can't do that for about 10 months because the property is about to be renovated.
I know that lemon trees can do well in pots indefinitely, but is my current pot too small for the 10 month storage
I have a larger pot which is about 40cm in diameter. Should I transfer the plant from the small pot to the large pot, and then (in 10 months) to my garden? I was worried that multiple transfers would increase the chances that the plant would die.
Are there other factors that I should hold in mind? For example, my larger pot does not have drainage.
