If you live in a smaller home and don't have room for the traditional Aussie backyard lemon tree then Melissa has just the plant for you.
Little Body, Big Fruit
- A strong plant that produces masses of fruit. It will grow to around 1.5m x 1.5m in approximately 10 years when planted in the ground
- In a large pot Citrus ‘Lemonicious' will grow to around 1m x 1m, it will fruit well and live happily in a pot for many years, without needing to be re-potted
- Citrus growing in the garden are usually fertilised twice a year, in August and again in February. However, citrus in pots do better if they are fertilised with smaller amounts more often. Use citrus food, pelletised manure or a slow release fertiliser for pots
