Citrus Plant - Mandarin
The perfect citrus plant for patio growing
The Mandarin orange is a small citrus tree producing delicious orange coloured fruit. Sweet flavoured and easy to peel they are popular with children of all ages! Supplied as a large specimen in a 5 litre pot, this citrus plant will begin producing fruit within 18 months. Plants despatched from 1m-1.5m tall.
Enjoy the scent and flavour of your very own Mediterranean-style citrus grove! Plants have glossy, dark green foliage, little white scented flowers and bear fruit from late spring to late summer.
Citrus plants are very rewarding to look after, providing endless interest as the small scented white flowers appear in spring, followed by small fruit as the flowers fade. With the correct conditions the fruit will grow steadily over the next six months until they ripen. The fruits can be picked off or left on the tree for ornamental purposes. To encourage a bushy plant and to maintain a good shape, plants can be trimmed just as the new growth starts to sprout in the spring.
