The Philippine Lime is a hybrid cultivated for maximum fruit production in a small sized tree that doesn't take up too much space. Perfect for a city patio or balcony.
Even the tiniest trees can produce many fruits.
Best space & place
They like a bright sheltered spot and will survive outdoors in milder parts of the UK - however as these specimens have come from warmer climates and are carrying fruit so they are best kept in a glasshouse or conservatory until the frost as passed.
When to water & feed
Citrus trees are thirsty in the summer months when they are carrying fruit, and can benefit from a citrus feed at this time of year. In winter months it is best to reduce watering.
Need to know
They can be kept indoors all year but require more care, and a period of cold to produce buds and then fruit. Often house kept citrus trees don't go on to produce a good crop.
Only needs protection over winter if temperatures drop below freezing. Horticultural fleece will keep it wrapped up safe.
