Citrus limonum or lemon tree gives many fruits in a season and the citrus blossom spreads a sweet smell ...More information

Product description

Citrus limonum is also called Citrus limon or lemon tree. This citrus lemon needs the same care as other citruses. Sometimes we also called Meyer lemon or the Citrus meyerii limone Meyer. This is a cross between a mandarin and lemon that tastes delicious. 
The blossom of the lemon tree smells wonderful during the summer months and is an asset to any terrace.

Is an easy citrus tree that only requires a slight pruning to keep the luxuriant growth in check.
Cutting back the plant late September or early October, let 1/3 part of the shoots, then the plant remains pretty full.

In a conservatory, a citrus plant blooms almost the entire year, alternating with fruit set.
On the terrace the blossom spreads a nice sweet smell.
You will harvest many fruits every year, because the Citrus limon gives a lot of lemon fruits during the summer.
Water the plant well and fertilize regularly, or use slow-release fertilizer such as Fertilizzante Mediterraneo or special liquid citrus food .
Winter hardiness zone 11 (+ 2ºC).

Keurig verpakt en prima kwaliteit. Onverwacht snel drie citroenen kunnen oogsten. Een aanrader en gebruik de juiste aarde en voeding voor een prima oogst.

Helaas geen bloemen en dus ook geen citroenen
