    A great addition to the subtropical garden, ‘Tahiti Lime’ is an attractive, medium sized tree that can be grown on the summer patio in a robust pot, which can then be moved into a greenhouse or conservatory when the temperatures start to dip. Their fruits make a great addition to lime infused culinary treats and summer drinks!

    Please note: These plants are sold as standards (ie. lollipop-shaped), so they'll have an irregular crown of foliage above a clear stem, which is approvimately 30cm tall. 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.
