Recognised to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Self fertile.
  • Like a sunny, sheltered position.
  • Prefer free draining, slightly acidic (pH 6 - 6.5) soil.
  • Can be grown outside through the spring and summer months but needs frost protection.
  • Requires a minimum of 5C (41F)and ideally 10C (50F)or higher.
  • Please note that citrus plants will drop leaves with extreme changes in temperature - they usually just re-leaf.
  • Edible flowers.
  • Perfumed flowers.
  • Fruits can take up to 18 months to ripen (but well worth the wait!)
  • Can be grown in pots.
  • Ensure the compost remains moist but doesn't get overly wet.
  • Never let the plant sit in water (as this will cause rot).
  • Feed the trees once a month from April until September and then every three months the rest of the year with a quality, general fertiliser.
  • Any pruning that is required is best done late autumn when the tree is dormant.
