Product description

Citrus latifolia Lime verde also known as the lime tree. Is just like other citruses a delicious smelling bush or tree on your terrace.
The sweet smell of the leaf and the blossom of the lime betray the fruitiness that will soon appear.

In the case of the Citrus latifolia, they are small green round fruits that have the size of a mandarin.
The fruit of the lime tree is so to eat and tastes deliciously fresh, this is good for mixed drinks, etc.
In the spring the lime may go out again, do this after there is certainly no chance of frost.
Now the water need may be increased again, but keep it moderate (not overdoing a lot).

Also give liquid fertilizer in the irrigation water to the plant every 3 weeks, from April to the end of September. This will immediately react and new shoots begin to grow.
Grow shoots too long to your liking than the citrus cut back in the fall. This way you keep a desired shape. In the winter, let the citrus plant overwinter in a place that is as light as possible.
Giving little water, once a month is enough. No more fertilization.

Ik heb bananen , limoen boompjes en citroengras besteld. Kwam veilig aan en ze doen het super goed.

Prima verpakt. Zeer gezonde plant met goede vruchtvorming. Deze zomer al 3 limoenen geoogst. Een aanraden. Citroen en Kafferlimoen waren ook in prima conditie. Van de citroen ook 2 vruchten geoogst. Wel verpotten in mediterrane potgrond en juiste voeding toevoegen.

Prachtige planten; heel gezond. Ik laat ze binnen overwinteren en prompt enorme bloei met lichte hele lekkere geur. Ik ben benieuwd naar komende zomer.
