lemon 'Vulcan'

Vulcan lemon

3lt pot (55-65cm) £79.99
  • 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 (will need winter protection)

    This handsome shrub offers year round interest with its lustrous, evergreen foliage, but it's primarily grown for its juicy, smooth-skinned fruits, which form after the highly scented flowers have faded. Ideal for growing in a large pot on a sunny patio in summer, it should be moved to an unheated conservatory or greenhouse when the temperatures start to dip.

    Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that any plant will be sent out with buds, flowers or developing fruit.

  • Garden care: Pot it up using a specialist citrus compost and feed every two weeks with a special citrus fertiliser (there is one for summer and another for winter). Pot on, or top-dress plants in late winter. Move outside after the risk of frost has passed to a sunny, sheltered patio.
