G and T Gift Set
We're excited to launch a brand new festive version of this G and T gift set this week complete with these super gorgeous gin baubles from Brighton Gin. Each tree comes with a bottle of Fever Tree tonic and a cute gin bauble that can be added to either your lemon tree or to your Christmas tree so you will always have a tasty gin and t to hand.
Having a party? Why not add on a couple of extra gin and tonics to make the party really swing.
Good to know: Although we carefully wrap and pack our plants to protect them, it is not unusual for the odd fruit to be dislodged during transit.
If you'd prefer your gift without the G&T, then please do check out our large lemon trees.
A clever idea which appeals to both gardener and a lover of G and T!
My friends loved it.
Healthy plant with 4 mature lemons, perfect present and smooth delivery
All very good communication and quality of plants are excellent . Good information, great service
My friend absolutely loved this for a birthday present. Great value for money and fantastic for someone who loves plants and gin!
I ordered the large Lemon 4 Seasons for a good friend's birthday present. Delivered ontime and was updated regularly throughout. Researched around 10 companies. What I liked about this company is their reputation and very detailed information to help me choose the correct lemon tree. Chose this tree over anither because its slightly more hardy in UK (if cared for correctly), flowers all year round and fruits too. Also is around 6 years old. I hoped for a nice healthy established tree, but I didn't expect it to look as full, and beautifully and outstandingly healthy as it does. There's even already a nearly full size lemon on it! So so over the moon. The pale pot chose to go with it fits perfect. Wish could attach a photo here. Will certainly order here again with confidence and would higly recommend. Thank you so so much
So easy to book and recipient was very happy with present

These instructions are sent with the plant gift
This plant has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers - sometimes both at once. It can bring pleasure for years, with the right care.
Citrus trees need lots of light, a conservatory is ideal, but they will also be happy next a window in a cool, bright room, the more direct daylight they receive through the day the better. In the summer, your lemon tree will enjoy going outside on a patio in full sun or partial shade. However, these citrus trees are not fully hardy and will need to come inside just before the first frosts. When indoors, try to keep your plant away from radiators and underfloor heating.
Because these plants are in a pot they will need regular watering. Once the top of the soil is bone dry, remove the plant from its outer container. Place the plant outside or in the sink, water the soil thoroughly from the top until excess water drains freely right through the pot and out of the bottom, always allow all the excess water to drain away from the plant before putting it back in its normal position. Sometimes if the soil is very compact this may take several watering’s. In the winter you should expect to water thoroughly once every 7-14 days, but always let the top of the soil dry between watering. In the hottest summer months, you may need to water once a day, but never stand your plant in water. Don’t worry if the soil feels dry between watering, but if the leaves start to droop or curl you know it is thirsty, so water straight away. From April until September, citrus trees will benefit from summer citrus feed once a week to encourage growth, in the winter you would need to swap to winter citrus feed to help with flower and fruit production, this is used from October until March once every two weeks.
Lemons grow quite slowly; if you need to, only repot in the spring, and only go up one pot size at a time. i.e. If your tree is in a 5-litre pot, repot into a 6-litre pot. Ensure you use a plant container with holes in the bottom for good drainage. As a 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 and turn yellow. However, in this country many varieties don’t follow a strict season and can fruit or flower at any point during the year.
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.
This gift includes a miniature bottle of Brighton Gin (5cl) and a can of Folkingtons tonic.
