Care Instructions +


Looking after your Baby Lemon Meyer
These instructions are sent with the plant gift
These attractive trees are a cross between a lemon and a mandarin tree and produce slightly rounder, sweeter lemons that are great in cooking. It can bring pleasure for years, with the right care.
Citrus trees need light. A conservatory is ideal but they will also be happy near a window in a cool, bright room. In the summer, your lemon plant will enjoy a patio in sun or partial shade. However young trees are not hardy and will need to come inside as soon as there is a nip in the evening air. When indoors, try to keep your plant away from cold draughts and radiators.
These trees have recently been repotted and should not need to be repotted again until spring 2011. As a general rule, lemon trees tend to produce flowers in late spring followed by small green fruits that can take 10 months or more to fully ripen ready for harvesting. In this country many varieties including this ‘La Meyer’ don’t follow a strict season and can fruit or flower at any point during the year. Don’t be alarmed if only a few of the flowers set - it is normal for the majority of the flowers to drop without forming buds leaving just a handful of fruit on a tree this size.
Citrus trees are not the easiest of plants but they are very rewarding. Look out for signs of trouble and try to treat problems early. The most common problem is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. If leaves are crisp when they drop, this is due to underwatering; if they are leathery the chances are it has been over watered. A return to a regular and thorough watering routine should lead to recovery. If new growth is very light in colour or has mottled markings your plant may be lacking trace elements. A good dose of citrus feed should soon green up the leaves. Our lemon trees are grown in a pesticide free environment. In the unlikely event that you find pests eg. aphids these can be removed by hand or with a soap and water spray. For more detailed information on citrus tree care, watering and problem solving visit
The Lemon Meyer fruit is slightly rounder and sweeter than a normal lemon with a thin fragrant rind that makes a really good zest for cooking. Fruits will turn an almost orange colour when fully ripe
