Great deal for a healthy little tree that even came with a small lime already on it.

The recipient was comletely over the moon and will certainly make good use of the limes and leaves as he is an excellent chef as well as a great gardener. Many thanks for living up to your reputation.
My mate loved this as a gift, there were likes already on it and he has already been able to have one. Excellent choice. He was thrilled. I was surprised how well it travelled! Looked perfect
This was a birthday present for my daughter as she had previously bought a lemon tree from this company. Service excellent, delivered very quickly. From a photograph of the tree, it looked very healthy and had an actual lime growing on it so she was delighted. Many thanks for your excellent srvice.
It seemed the perfect housewarming gift for my brother and his girlfriends new winter garden. They were very pleased and it looks good. No fruit yet but I’m sure it won’t be long.

This little tree has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers. It can bring pleasure for months, or even years, with the right care.
Citrus trees need light and like to be near a window, skylight, or patio door. In summer your lime tree 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. Remove the pot from inside its basket or container. Water thoroughly from the top until the 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. In the winter you would expect to water thoroughly every 10-14 days, in the summer months you may need to water up to 4 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.
If you need to repot your plant, do so in the spring using citrus compost. As a general rule, fruit buds should start to appear in early May and develop slowly into large and juicy limes great for cooking or sliced in cold drinks.
The most common problem is leaves dropping due to over or under watering. If the leaves turn crisp before they drop it is likely to be underwatering, if however they are soft and go a dark grey brown colour before dropping you plant may need less water and/or a less damp spot. A return to 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. You may need to move your plant back from a window or move it out of direct sunlight. Our lime 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.
