Citrus Trees

Sometime last year I was walking by Mistral in the Ferry Building and I noticed the cutest little orange trees in the window. It inspired me so much that for the last year I have made several attempts to keep citrus trees, all of which failed miserably. I was in Mistral last month for lunch and I asked the chef in the back where they got their orange trees. He said, “Bed Bath and Beyond. They are fake.” I couldn’t believe it. I had spent a year trying to figure out how to grow a citrus tree indoors when the whole time they were fake.

Here are some cute fake citrus trees for $22 {I stopped by B B & B and they didn’t have any.}
