PLEASE NOTE Your parcel travels in a clear recyclable bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
In ancient mythology a Lemon Tree symbolises good health and future success.
Your Lemon tree will happily grow in its organic pot for the next few weeks, just place it on a sunny windowsill or in a cool conservatory. Citrus trees appreciate being drenched with water only when the soil is completely dry. We have added organic nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
Plant your Lemon tree (still in its organic pot so the roots are not disturbed) in a large flower pot with holes, so excess water can drain away. Your Lemon tree will thrive in a bright, cool room, conservatory or greenhouse all year.
The Present Tree's Organic Plant Care Kit is packed with all the health-boosting goodness suitable for your Lemon tree. Click here for more details.
