Medium Meyer Lemon
Beautiful plant in great condition. I'd been searching for one for a present for a little while and Plants4Presents one was excellent value, and arrived just as expected. I will certainly use them again in future.
The tree is compact - small enough to fit on a large window ledge but still had plenty of lemons on it! It was purchased as a gift so I can't comment on how tasty they are!
Very heathy tree sturdy with lots of flowers and very young fruit. A little leaf curl but hope it will settle when the tree becomes accustomed to the new environment.
Well packaged and lovely plant
Excellent healthy plant full of growth at competitive price

This plant will eventually produce both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers - sometimes both at once. It is a variety called Lemon Meyer with round sweet lemons and can bring pleasure for years, with the right care.
Lemon trees need plenty of light. A conservatory is ideal, but they will also be happy near a sunny window. In the summer, your lemon plant will enjoy a patio or sheltered spot in the garden. However, young trees are not hardy and will need to come inside as soon as there is a nip in the evening air. Try to keep your plant away from cold draughts and radiators.
Water thoroughly from the top when the soil starts to look dry and let the excess water drain away completely. You might find it needs watering almost every day when it is hot in the summer but as little as once a fortnight in winter. It will depend on the weather and how warm your room is. The roots should not stand in water. The best way to judge whether your plant needs watering is to get used to the right weight for the watered pot. If the leaves begin to curl this is a sign that your plant is thirsty, you should water straight away.
Lemons grow quite slowly; and tend to rest and fruit during the winter. In the spring these young plants should start to put on new growth and can be re-potted into a larger pot using citrus or free draining compost as they grow. As a general rule, lemon trees tend to produce flowers in late spring and ripe fruits in Winter. However, in this country many varieties don’t follow a strict season and can fruit or flower at any point during the year.
Lemon trees are very rewarding to look after, but look out for signs of trouble and try to treat problems early. The most common problem is leaves dropping due to over or underwatering. If leaves drop very quickly, this is usually due to underwatering; if they drop slowly over time it is likely overwatering. A return to a regular and thorough watering routine should lead to a full 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.
