Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Lemon 'Eureka' is an outstanding variety that produces large and thick skinned lemons. The tiny white flowers will contrast beautifully against the dark and flossy foliage while filling the air with their stunning fragrance from April through to June. Lemon 'Eureka' fruits may take up to a year to ripen but they are well worth the wait. Harvest as they ripen and once picked you can keep these for up to two weeks. Lemon trees are reasonably hardy and capable of withstanding brief periods below 0C. However, we advise planting in large containers so they can be moved indoors to a bright and frost free position from Autumn through to Spring. Self fertile, you will not need a pollination companion. Propagated onto 'PS' rootstock and supplied as a large specimen bush (often in fruit) in a 5 litre pot. Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year, Estimated time to best yields: 3 years. Eventual height: 3m (9'). Spread: 2.5m (8').

Height Up to 300cm (118in)
Spread Up to 250cm (98in)

1 x 5 litre potted lemon plant (14288)

Plant citrus trees in patio containers in a mix of ericaceous compost and neutral, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Repot the plant at its original soil level and firm well into the new container. Water well and position in a frost free position in full sun.
Stand citrus trees outside from May to October. Water freely in summer and mist leaves daily to increase humidity and discourage pests. Feed with citrus plant fertiliser every 2 weeks. Move plants indoors from October to a bright, frost free position (4-12°C) away from cold draughts and radiators. Reduce watering in winter but do not let the plant dry out completely. Too much or too little water may cause the fruits to drop.
