  • Position: a sunny patio outside, or bright conservatory in winter
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil (specialist citrus potting mix should be used when potting up)
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: April to September
  • Hardiness: tender (needs winter protection)

    A remarkable, self fertile, heavy-cropping, little tree with glossy, dark green leaves, sometimes thorny stems and smooth-skinned, bright golden fruit with exceptional flavour. This clever variety is unique in that it keeps on producing flowers from spring to autumn, so it is possible to have flowers, small, un-ripened fruit as well as ready-to-pick lemons on the plant at the same time. One of the hardiest lemon trees available, it can be grown on a sunny patio in summer, but will need an unheated conservatory or greenhouse to over-winter.

  • Please note: These are sold as standard plants, so will have a crown of foliage above an 30cm tall (approximately) clear stem. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any plant will be sent out with buds, flowers or developing fruit.

  • Garden care: Ideally grow in a pot which is easily moved from terrace to conservatory, in a specialist citrus compost. Feed every two weeks with a special citrus fertiliser (there is one for summer and another for winter), and pot on or top-dress plants in late winter. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed to a sunny, sheltered patio.

  • Humans: Fruit harmful to skin with sunlight/skin allergen

I'd recommend plant & service


Quick efficient delivery. Lemon tree was healthy, decent size & potted well.




The lemons are still blooming on the bush in our sun room


Thus was a present and is doing well. We have to remember to bring it in for the winter and then put it out again in the spring. I have been careful to feed it summer and winter feed. We have 6 lemons on the bush - they take ages to ripen up but I am told that is normal. Makes G & T really personal!

Still going strong and we've even had some lemons from it!


Still going strong, this was a gift for my dad. Loads of beautiful flowers and a lot of lemons as well.

Lemons for my gin



Lovely plant - would buy again


Lovely plant




Just what I wanted


Beautiful lemon tree and has grown so much since I bought it. Also given lots of lemons, but they all remain green...I wonder why, I did not manage to get one to turn green they are all hunging from the tree quite big but green




Very happy with my purchase


I bought this lemon tree as a gift for my partner April 2018. It has grown in size & has flowered continually since then till now. We have brought into our conservatory over the winter & it's ok, so far.

I am very happy with my Lemon Tree.


The lemon Tree has been in flower for several months and the lemons, about 12, which were on the plant when it arrived are just going yellow.

we have become firm friends over the past 9 months! It needed a bit of attention when outside, as the pot and base are quite light and it easily falls over in the slightest breeze. Have had to put in a more solid pot. It's been very happy since it came in for the winter, about a dozen fruits are ripening and another dozen flowers are turning to fruit. It will need repotting before it goes back outside.

Given as a gift, fascinating to see the lemons grow.




I would buy this product again.


Wanted this for the patio and its a beautiful plant. Looking forward to using the lemons.

I have this tree forvcouple of months now and is potted in a big pot in the unsheltered outside garden. The pot is well soiled but I lost all the flowers as they all dropped due to the strong winds. Now 30% of leaves have dropped even though new flowers and leaves have started appearing. My concerns are that I will lose this tree and it will die unless I do something quickly so here are my questions: 1) should I keep it in the open garden or does it have to be sheltered from rain during spring, summer and autumn. From the comments I believe this plant needs shelter in winter 2) how often do I water it? I have been doing it almost daily but since it is outside and it rains a lot I have avoided watering during those periods 3) I have used summer feeds every two weeks since I have bought it 4) how do j stop leaves from dropping. They appear dry Appreciate your answers. I don't want to lose this tree


This plant is tender so will need to be brought into a conservatory or heated greenhouse during the winter. It sounds like the tree is suffering from the unseasonably cold conditions earlier in the spring. Watering - daily and even if it has been raining, keep an eye on moisture levels. I would suggest feeding it once a week during the summer. Feel free to send photos with your order number (and mention you posted here first) to customerservices@crocus.co.uk and we can take a closer look - thanks.


We plan to keep in an unheated conservatory over the winter. What's the minimum temperature the tree can take? And should we move it indoors if it drops below that temp in the conservatory?


It's always difficult to be too specific, however these plants will not tolerate being frozen. Therefore, they usually cope well in winter temperatures between 1-5C.


I have a lemon tree bought from you 2 years ago which had 1 lemon on it when it arrived and has since gone on to produce many flowers only 12 of which are maturing into lemons. Many flowers simply dropped off , others seemed to develop into tiny lemons but then shrivelled and dropped off. Over the last 2 months there has been a lot of sticky fluid on the leaves and dripping to the floor - is this normal or has the tree got a problem? The tree is pot grown in an orangery


Hello It is quite common for some of the flowers to drop off and not develop into fruits, but if this is excessive then this can be caused by dry roots and lack of humidity. As a rough guide a 1m tall tree should bear maximum of 20 fruits. However if there is a sticky fluid oozing from the leaves this sounds like it has an infestation. Lemon trees can be prone to scale insect, mealy bug or red spider mite so I would have a good look at the stems,and under the leaves to see if you can see any of these pests.


Hi there Would you know what size terra cotta pot is best for a fully grown lemon tree or an orange tree. Thank you very much


There are no hard and fast rules as it will depend on the variety, however I would say, you should get the biggest pot you can find if you want the plants to reach their full height.


Do these have fruits on already?


Hello, Often these plants are laden with lemons, however this is not something we can guarantee.


Before I order a lemon tree, can it be pruned and if so when would be best? I see they can get to 6m high (or am I reading the instructions wrongly?) I couldn't move a large tree into our greenhouse. Many thanks.


Hello, If this lemon is grown in a pot, then the height will naturally be restricted, and while little pruning is needed by the plants, you can thin them out, or cut back leggy plants in late winter, while pinching out the growing tips in summer will help encourage bushier growth.


Our lemon tree survived its first winter in our house and has now (early April) produced a few small flowers, but we are concerned about the new growth that has appeared at the top of the tree since mid-February. The new growth consists of fast-growing shoots with large, pale-green leaves. Some of these leaves are five times as big as the older dark-green leaves. Googling around I find very little about this situation -- one site talks about pale leaves on lemon trees indicating a zinc or iron deficiency; another site said that large/oversized leaves on a lemon tree might indicate too little sunlight; other sites talk about "water sprouts" as a harmless type of growth, or one that should be removed because it produces little fruit. Do you have any ideas about whether it is normal, what might be causing it, and what to do? Thanks!


Hello, If the shoot is definitely not appearing below the graft union, then I suspect it is a water shoot, so I would simply cut it back to a within a couple of buds from the main stem.


I'm so sorry - I've already asked this question but got the question slightly wrong... The question was can we over winter in an unheated greenhouse (last time I accidentally wrote unheated conservatory which I guess are usually warmer than unheated greenhouses). And if so will it need to be protected with fleece?


Hello, Yes and unheated greenhouse should be fine too - and whether or not you will need extra protection will depend on how cold it gets in your area. They tend to be fine in temperatures down to 7C, so you may need to fleece in conditions below that.


Hi there... I'm keen to have a lemon tree but we do not have a conservatory and our old cottage is not exactly flooded with light. Can we overwinter in an unheated conservatory? Thanks.


Hello, Yes, this sounds ideal!


Just received my lemon tree this week and whilst having 4 lovely big lemons on it, many of the older leaves have yellowing leaf edges and brown tips. The newer growth of large leaves is also a paler green, not dark or glossy and starting to mottle. What do I need to do to help it recover and get established please, or do I need to send back?


Hello, These plants are evergreen, so it is not unusual for their older leaves to turn yellow and brown before they drop off. Also, most evergeens tend to shed this old foliage in spring when they are getting ready to put on new growth. Therefore I would not be too concerned, however as lemons are very heavy feeders, you should be using the summer citrus feed now http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/summer-citrus-feed/classid.1000000238/ and the winter citrus feed during the colder months. http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/winter-citrus-feed/classid.1000000237/


Lemons in London!

I am a naughty gardener.I have been gallivanting again, this time in spring when no self-respecting grower ever strays more than five feet from the garden gate. I abandoned a whole greenhouse full of just-emerged seedlings and a half-planted veg garde
