Plant Rescue Box
Out of stock
"Plants shouldn’t end up in the bin just because they no longer look ‘perfect’. They deserve our love and care, for without them none of us would exist. All too often houseplants are treated as disposable items, like a wilted bunch of flowers but they are alive and do so much for us, the least we can do is try our best to help them recover" Sarah @theplantrescuer
What's in the box?
- 1 large citrus tree between 60 and 100cm tall in a 5L (20cm diameter pot).
- 1 pot of our winter citrus feed to help strengthen your plant
- An A4 care guide all about looking after your new citrus tree
The Plant Rescue Box contains a strong 6 year old citrus tree that has failed one of our stringent quality checks. At Plants4Presents we specialise in plants as gifts so our quality standards are really high. If a plant is a gift it needs to come out the box looking fantastic and sometimes we will have trees that just don't make that grade.
In some cases it can simply be that the plant doesn't have any visible flowers or fruits at the moment, sometimes it might be that they've had a pest attack and are in the process of recovering and building up their strength and sometimes it will be that they've been in their current pot too long and need repotting and feeding up again.
Plants like this are typically thrown away but we want to change the industry and give them a second chance!These plants have come from our plant 'hospital' area and have been treated regularly with an organic pesticide called SB invigorator and a programme of natural predators. They will be carefully checked before despatch to ensure that although they may have had pest problems in the past they should not arrive with any live plant pests.
My plant has an odd shape, mottled or yellow leaves, can I get a refund?All the plants sold will be imperfect but with the right care will grow - so sorry, no refunds will be given. The price reflects the condition of the plants.
Who should buy this box?Citrus plants do need a bit of attention and this rescue box is aimed at people who already have some plant care experience. You will also need somewhere nice and bright to keep your new friend as citrus trees love a bright spot. A frost free patio, greenhouse or large south facing windowsil are all good spots but citrus won't thrive in a dark room. Because these plants are 'seconds' our main range of citrus trees are normally more suitable if it's a gift.

SHIPPING INFORMATIONAll our plants are sent on tracked overnight services and are carefully wrapped and boxed in kraft paper and recycled card by our team of plant lovers to make sure they reach you safely. You can choose your preferred delivery date on the order form and leave instructions about where to leave your plant if you'll be out.
At the time of writing, we have a good number of large lemon Meyer and lemon4seasons, a few large lemon Pursha, as well as 1 or 2 Makrut and 1 large orange tree. Please let us know if you have a preference from one of the above, and we'll do our best to follow this but as some varieties do sell out very quickly it is worth putting a couple of options for us to choose from.
Everything well packet, and healthy planst, thank you
Good Pursha lemon tree
Arrived quickly, very carefully packed and shipped. You wouldn't know it was a 'rescue' plant, it's in really good condition. Bought another for a friend who admired it.
We got a Lemon Mayer and it looks great!!!
Pursha's (both of them) were beautifully scented, and laden with 2-4 flowers each (alongside dozens of light green, fresh scented leaves! Wonderful, thick and tall, trunk on each young (6+ year old) tree!
To say it was a rescue plant i was verry surprised when i opened the box it was actually in good condition, well hapoy
Great value plants, still really healthy, lemon in bud and sweet orange has beautifulglossyleaves, perfect way to treat yourself to a good quality plant
Great little plants I received and I can't wait to watch them grow bigger and healthy. I choose the rescue box because I'll be able to see all my hard work as the plants grow and my children love it. the plants arrived with a few leaves and some flowers as well as tinny fruit which were a bonus :) :). Time to start my rehabilitation for these wonderful plants... I would definitely recommend them.
Totally Brilliant, beautiful and tall :-)
