All our lemon tress are sold with care instructions and are grown to very high standards. Order online and choose your delivery date.

The 2 best varieties of lemon trees to grow in the UK are Lemon4seasons and Lemon Meyers.

Our Lemon trees are available in a range of sizes, both types will fruit well in our climate and take temperatures down to -1C. In our experience the Lemon4seasons, (also known as Eureka), is slightly easier going and tolerates lower light levels producing the odd fruit all year round. Lemon Meyers on the other hand, produce slightly smaller, sweeter fruits and tend to crop more heavily but only once or twice a year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are all lemon trees identical?

A common question but the answer is no, there are lots of different varieties of lemon trees and lemon trees can be crossed with other varieties to make hybrid citrus trees. All the lemon trees that we sell are grafted trees which means they will fruit reliably even when the plant is still young. The way the trees are grafted and the root stock they are grafted on. Will also affect the size, the shape and the way the tree grows. The most popular and common varieties to grow in the UK are lemon Meyers and Lemon4seasons (also known as Garey’s Eureka) Lemon4seasons produce the classic lemon with thick skin and a pointed end that we typically buy in the shops. Lemon Meyers have a neater habit and a smaller rounder, juicier lemons that are prized by chefs. We also sell dwarf Lara lemons which are a cross between a lemon and a kumquat and some more unusual relatives of the Lemon family including Citrons, Bergamots and Yuzus.

Why should I have a lemon tree?

We love a lemon tree, what can beat picking your own lemons fresh from the tree? As well as their tasty harvest these evergreen trees are handsome plants in their own right, producing gorgeous fragrant blossom off and on throughout the year. In fact one of the nicest things about lemon trees is because they have such a long fruiting season, there is almost always something to look at all year round from spring blossom and embryonic fruits in March to ripe yellow fruits in the depths of winter. Lemon trees are by far our most popular citrus tree and are a great way to bring a slice of the Mediterranean in to your home.

Do you sell winter citrus feed?

Yes we do, our winter citrus feed will help supply your plants with essential nutrients to built healthy fruits and foliage from September to February

I don't have a lot of room for plants or trees, can I still have a lemon tree?

Yes, size limitations are always a consideration when purchasing new plants. We offer young meyer lemon trees and lara lemons which are ideal for smaller spaces such as kitchens or windowsills or even balconies. These plants have lower graft points and are on dwarf root stock so they stay a manageable size and produce plentiful fruits on just a small bush.

Where are your lemon trees grown?

Our youngest lemon trees and bush shaped Meyers are grown in the UK but the majority of our larger trees are imported directly from a cooperative of nurseries in Sicily that we have worked with for many years.

What are Meyer lemon trees?

Meyer lemon trees are a variety that was bred and named by Frank Meyer in the states in the early 1900s. It’s believed to have a mandarin orange in it’s parentage which explains why the fruits are so sweet and tasty and the way they almost turn orange when fully ripe. They are a particularly hardy variety that if kept on the dry side have been known to withstand temperatures as long as -5C. They grow well in the ground in California but they also have a long history of doing well in pots in the UK and New Zealand and they hold the prestigious RHS Award of Garden Merit A great variety for a chef, the fruits are truly delicious and are a variety no citrus collection should be without.
