What’s not to love about this set. Citrus trees Vivi, Lionel and Kai not only all look beautiful and flower for much of the year, they produce lots of edible fruit too. With all three, you’re basically creating your own little citrus grove. This set makes an unforgettable gift for very special occasions. The set is available with or without decorative pots.
This set without pots includes:
Vivi - One of our most popular plants, Vivi is a tree to make you smile. She can flower and fruit throughout the year, if she gets lots of light, regular watering and a good feed at least once a month in spring and summer. Fruit can take up to a year to ripen, but the best things come to those who wait. She’ll love being outside in spring and summer, but needs to come inside when the weather turns cold.
Lionel - He’s just as cheerful as his citrus sisters. If he gets lots of light, water and fertiliser he should be covered in juicy limes throughout the year. He can flower in all seasons and, like Vivi, his fruit may take up to a year to ripen. He loves the sun, but not the cold, so bring him indoors for autumn and winter.
Kai - Kai is a fabulously unusual citrus plant. If you’ve never tried a kumquat, they’re unlike any other citrus. You eat the small, oval fruit whole and they have a flavour that combines sweet and intense sourness. They’re an acquired taste - they’re great in cooking - but even if you don’t eat them, they look stunning on a tree. Give her the same treatment as the others: lots of light; regular water; frequent feeding; indoors in winter.
The set with pots includes:
Three fibrestone cylinder pots (one black, one grey, one terracotta) - Made of tough but quite lightweight fibrestone, these pots are built to last years and can be left outside through all seasons. A great choice for places where weight is a consideration, like balconies. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which colour best suits each tree.
