Top Tips

  • For best results, bring indoors to cool area for winter.
  • Feed with specialist feed every month in spring and summer growth - they are hungry fellows.

Care Information

  • In summer, water freely - ideally with rainwater, while in winter you can reduce the amount - allowing the surface to dry out before watering again. Always allow excess water to drain away.
  • Overwatering in winter is one of the commonest problems, so err on the dry side.
  • Only minimal pruning is required to reshape or remove dead or damaged shoots.
  • Provide shelter from severe frosts in winter.
  • Citrus do not thrive in centrally heated homes, but a cool greenhouse on conservatory is suitable for overwintering.
