Description

Bring a taste of the Mediterranean to your patio with this generous collection of fruit trees. Citrus trees make fabulous patio plants, thriving outdoors in summer and enjoying a heated greenhouse or conservatory in winter. Green Figs are much hardier, and can be trained against a wall for a tasty crop of green figs. Height: up to 3m (9'). Spread: up to 4m (13').

  • Mediterranean Fruit Collection comprises:
  • Tahiti Lime - The lovely seedless limes are produced in abundance and if left on the tree will eventually turn yellow.
  • Orange ‘Calamondin’ - The small, juicy orange fruits have a bitter taste at first before leaving a delicious sweet flavour in your mouth.
  • Lemon Tree - The fruits may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait.
  • Green Fig - Enjoy crops of sweet, juicy figs from August to September.

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.

How to Grow

Citrus Trees - 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.

Fig Trees - Grow fig trees in a sheltered, sunny position. A warm, south facing site against a wall is ideal. Figs prefer a moisture retentive, fertile, well drained soil that is slightly alkaline. Prior to planting fig trees, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Figs have a vigorous growth habit but can be restricted by constructing a 60cm (2') square, open bottomed brick or concrete pit around the root system. Add a 15cm (6") layer of broken stone to the base of the pit. Alternatively plant figs in large patio containers using a well drained compost such as John Innes No.3. When growing fig trees in containers they should be repotted every two years. If figs are to be wall trained, install support wires prior to planting.

More Info

Citrus Trees - 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.

Fig Trees - Water fig trees regularly, particularly during hot dry periods. Figs will not require much feeding except for a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant in spring. In particularly cold areas container grown plants can be moved to a frost free position in winter to protect the developing fruits and fruit bearing shoot tips from frost. Protect the fruits and stems of figs grown outdoors by wrapping them in a layer of straw and hessian in severe weather.

Figs may be fan trained against a wall or grown as a bush. To bush train: Start pruning fig trees in the first spring after planting. Select 8 to 10 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 60cm (24") and shorten them by half to encourage more branching and to establish a framework. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any crossing, crowded or damaged shoots from between selected branches to create an open bush.

In following years figs require little pruning except to remove any damaged or misplaced shoots to maintain the open framework. New shoots can be pinch pruned in summer back to 5 or 6 leaves to encourage fruit formation.

When growing figs in the UK climate the fruits will develop in spring and ripen throughout the summer for harvesting in late summer or autumn when soft. A second crop may begin to develop in late summer. Leave these figs intact - any that survive the winter will ripen the following year.

Caution: The foliage and sap of Ficus carica is harmful if eaten and may irritate the skin and eyes.
