Meyers Lemon      £8.00

Citrus meyeri                   Sold out

Like all citrus trees the Meyers Lemon is an attractive evergreen with wonderful scented flowers in spring and early summer.  It used to be considered a variety of the ordinary lemon, C. limon, but is now classified on its own largely because it is hardier, surviving a few degrees of frost, the fruit being rounder than most lemons, thin skinned and very juicy. 

More of a shrub than a tree, it does very well in a pot of lime free compost, sits out side in the warmer months but mine come into a greenhouse in the winter which is when the fruit ripens.  Could be tried outside in a sheltered sunny spot but would have to be very sheltered and free draining.
