Excellent service and good quality plants. Items were dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and with good communication throughout. So far the plants look great and seem to be adjusting to their new home well.Can't fault at all, would recommend and will definitely be using again.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

How To Care For Lemon Tree

As with other indoor fruit trees it is imperative to get the watering right. We are looking to keep the soil moist but not wet / soggy. While your lemon tree sets down it’s root, it may require watering upto once or twice per week during the growing season, reducing this to monthly in winter. You can check the hydration of the soil with one of our soil & light combitesters.

Hailing from sunny shores, the lemon tree wants to soak up as many rays as it possibly can. It’s going to need at least 8 hours of sunlight per day or supplementing with indoor grow lights. Aim to plant your lemon tree in a south facing window.

The ideal temperature range for lemon trees is around 24 degrees celcius. If you cant sustain this (like most of the UK), it is definitely best to keep it indoors as they are particularly sensitive to the cold. So, make sure you also keep it away from any cold drafts or doors that open and close to avoid changing temperatures.

They also prefer humidity levels around 50%, so treat your lemon tree to some misting with one of our water misters or introduce a humidifier.

As with most other fruit trees, lemon trees thrive in a sligthly acidic, well-draining soil. Add extra sand, perlite or grit to your soil to encourage additional drainage.

Fruit trees are energy-hungry and require regular feeding during the growing season (spring and summer). Use a complete NPK fertiliser for optimum growth and the best fruit production.

If your lemon tree has become root bound, repot during early spring / late winter.

About Lemon Tree

The lemon tree hails from tropical and sub-tropical climates. It is an evergreen and drought resistant once established. It doesnt handle cold temperatures well at all, so ensuring an ambient temperature of around 24 degrees celcius is critical.

The yellow fruit of the lemon tree has many uses, from cooking to cleaning. It can help cut through deep flavours with it’s zingy taste or cut through grease and grime due to it’s acidic properties.

The lemon tree has been around for millenia, but no one truly knows it’s specific origin. It is know to have come from Asia and was known to have existed in China from around 500 BC, reaching Europe around 1000 AD. It was even purported that Captain Cook introduce the lemon tree to Australia in 1788.
