Limequat Trellis

This hybrid tree is a cross between a lime and kumquat with fruits that are like limes but are the size of small kumquats. Like all citrus this limequat tree likes plenty of light and in a sunny spot will reward you with lots of tasty mini limes for cooking and G and Ts!
Current Description
We're very sorry, but the limequat trellis is out of stock. We hope to have some more later in the year and will update this page as soon as we know more. In the meantime you'll find a wide selection of other beautiful house plants that we do have available on our website.

This little tree has both decorative fruit and fragrant flowers - sometimes both at once. It can bring pleasure for months, or even years, with the right care. The fruit is edible, but not sweet - good for flavouring cooked dishes or sliced in cold drinks.

Citrus trees need light and like to be near a window, skylight or patio door. In Summer your limequat will enjoy a sheltered patio, but needs to come inside as soon as there is a nip in the evening air. Try to keep your plant away from cold draughts, direct sunlight and radiators.

While plants are in a pot they will need regular watering, but it is important not to let the roots get waterlogged. 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. If the leaves start to droop or curl you know it is thirsty, so water straight away. You will need to water much less in winter.

In the summer, citrus trees will benefit from citrus feed every few weeks to encourage growth. If you need to repot your plant do so in the spring in citrus compost. As a general rule they flower in Summer and fruits ripen in the winter. The fruits are ready to harvest when they turn yellow and are sweeter than limes with an edible rind. They are good for flavouring cooked dishes or adding a tang to cold drinks.

The most common problem with a limequat is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. If the leaves turn crisp before they drop off it is likely to be underwatering. If, however if they are soft before dropping your plant may need less water. A return to a regular watering routine should help your plant recover, but in severe cases it may be necessary to cut off any dead growth and be patient while it recovers. If the leaf edges turn brown this is a sign of scorching. Your may need to move your plant back from a window or move it out of direct sunlight. Our plants are grown in a pesticide free environment. In the unlikely event that you find any pests (including aphids or caterpillars) on your plant use a soft soap or pest spray to wash off the offending creatures and pick off any damaged leaves to keep the plant tidy.
