Good to know: Although we carefully wrap and pack our plants to protect them, when the fruits are large and heavy, it is not unusual for the odd one to be dislodged during transit. New photos of the trees with yellow lemons to come.
I have bought plants here before. They are always more forward, in excellent condition and of very good value. And you can talk to them if you need advice.
The tree had been knocked in transit and lost two branches. Even so, it is a well grown, strong, small tree and will, no doubt, put on strong new growth. Still good value for money
This is a wonderful and unusual plant. So much so that we’ve bought a yuzu and are contemplating a lime finger one for a present. And thank you for the excellent customer service.
Brilliant service, there was a problem with my order and they spent time explaining to me and sorted everything quickly

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 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.
While plants are in a pot they will need regular watering. Remove the pot from inside its basket or container. Water thoroughly from the top until excess water drains right through the pot and out of the bottom. This will ensure the roots at the bottom get the water they need. Sometimes if the soil is very compact this may take several waterings and is easiest to do in a kitchen sink. In the winter you should expect to water thoroughly once every 7-10 days, in the summer months you may need to water up to 3 times a week but do not stand your plant in water. Don't worry if the soil feels dry between waterings, but if the leaves start to droop or curl you know it is thirsty, so water straight away. In the summer, citrus trees will benefit from citrus feed every few weeks to encourage growth.
Lemons grow quite slowly; if you need to, repot in the spring in citrus compost. 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 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, e.g. aphids, these can be removed by hand or with a soap and water spray.
