In May 2012 I ventured into getting some citrus plants for our small backyard. Searched online and finally went into ebay to purchased 5 plants which I thought were cheap. After more research and reading about cuttings and grafted plants, I realised I had made a mistake by purchasing the 5 citrus plants which were cutting grown. Cutting grown plants will take many more years to start producing fruit (if ever) and are more prone to disease. So the search continued.
After more reading, I settled on getting a dwarfed lemon tree due to space constraints in the backyard. I found a nursery in Monbulk, and purchased a dwarfed lemon meyer tree, a dwarfed orange valencia and a cumquat. These were all grafted plants and there were some fruits on the lemon tree and the cumquat.
