We bought a Lemon Tree in a pot in the fall. It is a good 10' tall. I watered in the winter and pulled it in the porch. We live in SE Washington State where the temps get to be 110 in the summer and around 30 in the winter. The tree had lots of flowers and little fruit. Then everything turned yellow around March. Is the tree dead? How can I determine if it is "pot bound?" We wanted to plant it in the soil this spring. Not sure if I'm planting a dead tree....what should we do?
