Current Description
The Lyvia (or Lara) lemons are looking fab this week. Nicely shaped young plants with at least 3 or 4 green fruit, it's fun to watch as these ripen over the coming months. They are perfect for a sunny windowsill and a great way to start your citrus passion! After a different variety or something bigger? We have a wide range of other lemon trees available too. Good to know: Although we carefully wrap and pack our plants to protect them, when fruit are ripe and / or heavy on the plant, it is not unusual for them to be dislodged during transit. The good news is they can still be used, and it will trigger the plant to produce more flowers.

Care Instrictions

These instructions are sent with the plant gift

This little tree has both tasty fruit and fragrant flowers – sometimes both at once. It can bring pleasure for months, or even years, with the right care. It is a cross between a lemon and a kumquat. The fruit is smaller but tastes very similar to a lemon with a sweet edible rind and is great for flavouring cooked dishes or slicing in cold drinks.

Citrus trees need light and a south facing window or patio door is ideal, but chose the brightest spot you can find in your home. Do make sure it is well away from radiators, underfloor heating and draughts. In summer your tree will enjoy a sheltered patio but needs to come inside in the autumn when the temperatures start to drop.

Your little lemon tree will require watering once the top of the soil is dry, and the best way to check is by touch. Gently stick your finger 1cm into the soil and if it feels dry, the plant is ready for a drink. If still slightly damp check it again tomorrow.

When the soil is dry to the touch, remove the plant from its container, and place on a draining board. Water the soil heavily, using at least 1/2 L. It is important to allow all the excess water to drain away and so leave it for a good 30 minutes before placing it back in its normal bright position. The plant will gradually lose leaves if left to stand in water.

Citrus trees are very greedy and feeding them regularly with a specialist citrus feed will help your plant thrive and produce future flowers and fruit.

If you need to repot your plant, its best to do so in the spring in a free draining compost. As a rule, they flower in spring/ summer and fruits ripen in the winter.

Problem solving

Leaf drop is the most common problem with citrus and is usually due to over or under watering. 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.
