Grow in pots for best results – plants can stay in their nursery pot or move to a similar decorative container and place in a su y spot outside. Alternatively, grow in a cool greenhouse or conservatory. To ensure you’ll be picking delicious fruit year after year, we advise you to keep your trees in their pots and place them in a su y, sheltered position. Protect from frost during the winter time either by bringing indoors into a conservatory.

Feed with specialist citrus feed regularly in spring and summer. Care Information Citrus tend not to thrive in centrally heated homes, so from mid-June to late September, give plants a treat and transfer them outside to make the most of the available sunshine – but remember they are not frost tolerant so will need to be brought under cover if cold nights threaten. In summer, water freely – ideally with rainwater, while in winter you can reduce the amount – allowing the surface to partially dry out before watering again. Always allow excess water to drain away. Overwatering in winter is one of the commonest problems, so try to keep them on the dry side. Only minimal pruning is required to reshape or remove dead or damaged shoots.
