Buy lemon 'Garey's Eureka' ( Four Seasons) lemon ( syn lemon Four Seasons ): Large lemons are produced

  • Position: a sunny patio outside, or bright conservatory in winter
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil. John Innes No2 compost 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 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.

    The plants may not arrive with fully developed lemons, but they are top-notch, quality plants.

  • Garden care: Ideally grow in a pot which is easily moved from terrace to conservatory, in soil-based 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.

Had to wait a long time for the lemon tree to come but it was worth it. Looked rather sad to start with b ut it recovered and survived in the Conservatory during the Winter. Lovely flowers and a few tiny lemons which have now dropped as I put it in the garden for the Summer and I think it was a bit too windy..... my fault not Crocus!!! In general very pleased with it and hope it will last for years. It arrived very will packed as with all Crocus plants.

Died after one winter despite being in greenhouse

Was bought as a present and was feed with appropriate food during summer and winter. Was kept outside in summer and in greenhouse in winter. One year on and it seems to be dead/dying no idea why very upset.

Beautiful lemon tree

Received a good sized, healthy plant with 5 ripe lemons already on it! Tasted top notch squeezed on my pancake. I have now transplanted the tree into a bigger pot and was very happy to see it had healthy roots. I wouldn't normally spend this amount on a plant but it really is a winner and well worth it. It now has plenty of buds so I'm looking forward to seeing what they are like. Really thrilled with this!

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

Jenny

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.

Helen

Do these have fruits on already?

Pl

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

Helen

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.

goldie

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.

Helen

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!

lemonysnicket

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.

Helen

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?

fuzzyHQ

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.

Helen

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.

FuzzyHQ

Hello, Yes, this sounds ideal!

Helen

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?

Cat

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/

Helen

What height are the lemon trees and are they carrying any fruit at present? RR

Rosa

Hello, These plants are currently around 40 - 50cm tall and they currently don't have any fruit.

Helen

Hi. Got our Four Seasons lemon tree from you earlier this year and it is doing well. Maybe too well! It now has 7 lemons on it (of varying age) with the oldest just starting to turn yellow. The question is should we be thinning off some of the fruit? The tree is about 750mm high and 600mm diameter and is growing well but we don't want to over-exhaust it! Any ideas welcome.

pata

Hello there It sounds very healthy! One of the benefits of this lovely tree is that it is a heavy cropper and you can have fruits of varying different ages on one plant. I wouldn't thin the fruits out yet. As long as you are switching to the winter citrus feed it should be fine. As a rough guide a 1m tall tree should bear maximum of 20 fruits. http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/winter-citrus-feed/classid.1000000237/ http://www.crocus.co.uk/product/_/summer-citrus-feed/classid.1000000238/ Hope this helps.

I have an All Seasons lemon tree which is about 5 years old, it gives me beautiful flowers (which remind me of Southern France) but no fruit. I re potted it this spring,it looks healthy with glossy leaves,I have not given it any feed it lives in the Sun Lounge which has no heating in the winter.. Please can you help? Thank you.

Hello, Citrus like to be fed, and I suspect this is why you are not getting any fruits. There are 2 specialist fertilisers - one for summer and one for winter.

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
