Fragrant white flowers open from red-tinted buds throughout the summer and are followed by green limes up to 10cm long. A compact, large shrub that is best grown in a pot where it can be placed in afrost-free place in winter.
- Garden care: In pots grow in soil-based or ericaceous compost in full sun. Feed every two weeks with a specialist citrus fertiliser. Pot on or top-dress plants in late winter. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed to a sunny, sheltered patio. Keep pruning to a minimum, but if necessary lightly trim to remove misplaced branches and maintain a compact habit immediately after flowering.
