Citrus limon, instantly recogniseable of course, the lemon is an essential citrus plant common in all mediterranean countries and almost hardy here these days given a very sheltered warm garden. The plants we stock are grafted forms selected for their hardiness and fruits although not named these are selected strains chosen by our Spanish grower himself very modest but a visit to his nursery in early spring is an inspiring and wonderfully fragrant experience.
Like all citrus lemon trees, requires a certain amount of expertise to grow successfully here in the U.K and I won’t write an essay here but in a nutshell it’s important to remember that they are mediterranean, yes obvious but easy to overlook in your zest, pardon the pun, to care for any citrus plant is that they are easy to look after during the summer, lots of light and occasional feeds. Just remember that winter in the sunny med is cool at night and warm to sometimes chilly during the day perfect for citrus to rest and ripen their fruits. So the biggest killer here is warm often hot conservatories day and night combined with reduced light. Ideally citrus should have a cool but frost free bright spot to spend the frosty months.
