Lemons can survive outside in a very sheltered position and will flower again in the spring. Like all citrus it needs ericaceous or acidic soil or the leaves will turn yellow or chloritic and the plant will not thrive. Tap water is often too alkaline and over time it may cause the soil to become alkaline. To have fruits it needs to be brought inside over the winter and spring. This one is on the bay roof in a sunny south facing direction. This summer has been so cold I am surprised that it is fruiting so well.
