Description How to Grow More Info Delivery

Orange 'Bigaradier' produces lovely bright orange fruits similar to the Seville orange which are ideal for making delicious marmalade. Set against a bushy foil of glossy, dark foliage, the delicate clusters of tiny white flowers fill the air with their delicious fragrance from April to June. The fruits that follow may take up to a year to ripen but are well worth the wait. Harvest them as they ripen - once picked, oranges will keep for up to 2 weeks.


Orange trees are capable of surviving brief periods below 0C, but are best grown in large containers and moved indoors to a bright frost free position from autumn to spring. This tree is self fertile and will not need a pollination companion. Propagated onto 'PS' rootstock and supplied as a large specimen bush (often in fruit) in a 5 litre pot. Height: 2m (6'). Spread: 1.2m (2').


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.


Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

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.
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.
