What Is Supplied
Item 680091 supplied as:
2x Orange Trees 5-6L Pots
- 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.
- The sweetly-fragranced flowers appear all year round, especially in late winter, and fruit ripens up to 12 months later - so plants are often in flower and fruiting at the same time.
- Citrus tend not to thrive in centrally heated homes, so from mid-Jun 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 bringing 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 a common problem with citrus trees, so try to keep them on the dry side.
- Only minimal pruning is required to reshape or remove dead or damaged shoots.
