Patio citrus

Savour the taste of home grown oranges and lemons with this citrus plant collection.

Oranges and lemons take up to a year to develop, but they're well worth the wait. Not only are they perfect as the 'slice' in a cold drink or gin and tonic, but the bright fruits have plenty of ornamental appeal, too.

Grow them outdoors in the summer, but move them inside before the first frost ? you'll be rewarded with bright, edible fruits.

Height: 1.5m , Spread: 1.2m, Cropping period: throughout the year, Position: full sun.

Growing Info Tab

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 Tab

Stand orange and lemon 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.
