Citrus Trees

Citrus tree are one of the fussier trees we have to offer but are definitely worth the extra care when the fruits of your labour are ready for the picking. 

The basics of citrus tree care is as follows:

Keep indoors in an unheated conservatory, porch or hallway. Citrus trees need a lot of bright light and good air ventilation.

As they prefer slight humidity make sure not to place near any central heating or radiators. This both dries out the air and causes dramatic changes in air temperature.

Never leave the pot standing in water. The roots will not tolerate over watering or waterlogged soil. Only water when necessary and make sure the pot drainage is adequate.

You will know when your citrus trees start to feel stressed as they may suffer with something known as citrus leaf drop. While it is alarming, don't be too worried. With the correct care you will be able to bring your tree right back to full health again.

Rose Bushes

Most rose bushes will need to be planted into the ground but check on the variety to see whether you can plant it up into a pot. Patio roses in particular are perfect for container growing.

Rose bushes will like to be in a sunny but sheltered area where they can get a lot of light throughout the flowering period.
