Description

Citrus trees make fabulous patio and conservatory plants! This potted Lime will produce bright green, zesty fruits with maturity. Set against a foil of glossy, dark foliage, the delicate clusters of tiny white flowers fill the air with their delicious fragrance. The fruits that follow may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait. Once harvested, Limes will keep for up to 2 weeks.

Lime trees are capable of surviving brief periods below 0C, but are best grown in containers and moved indoors to a bright frost free position from autumn to spring. Ultimate height and spread: Up to 4.5m (14’).

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.

Information on limes
Despatched through autumn and winter you may notice that some of the fruit on your lime tree is actually showing yellow or orange. Rest assured you have received a lime and not an orange or lemon tree.
All limes varieties and species will change from bright green to yellow and orange as they become more ripe.
The limes that are bought in supermarkets are picked very immature to both retain the acidity, firmness and green colour. The flavour will also change with age and the yellow/orange fruits will be significantly sweeter than those that are picked bright green. In addition, limes are usually sold as quite a small round fruit as they are far from fully grown. The ripe fruits are much larger.
Rest assured, if you wish to pick green fruits, you will be able to do so next year when the fruits are at an earlier stage of ripeness.

How to Grow
Plant citrus trees in patio containers in a mix of ericaceous compost and neutral, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in a frost free position in full sun.
More Info
Stand citrus trees outside from May to October. Water freely in summer and mist leaves daily to increase humidity and discourage pests. Feed with citrus plant fertiliser every 2 weeks. Move plants indoors from October to a bright, frost free position (4-12°C) away from cold draughts and radiators. Reduce watering in winter but do not let the plant dry out completely. Too much or too little water may cause the fruits to drop.
