Citrus x Limon
Lemon Trees provide an instant Mediterranean feel to a garden or patio. Citrus trees boast glossy dark green foliage producing beautifully fragrant white flowers throughout early spring followed by fruit sets in summer. Lemon trees are self-fertile so a single tree provides both flowers and fruit. It can take up to a year for the fruit to ripen so it is possible to have both fruits and flowers present at the same time.
Citrus thrives in a warm, sunny sheltered position. They are best kept in a container or pot as they are not fully hardy in the British climate. During autumn and winter, it is recommended that they are brought indoors into a conservatory or a greenhouse. Avoid placing the citrus tree near central heating, as this can cause leaf drop due to the lack of air humidity. During particularly cold spells of weather place a horticultural fleece around the plant for additional protection.
Supplied at a height of 25-30cm (excl. pot) in a 1.5L pot
