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.


1 x 14cm potted lime plant (KB2669)

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.
