House Plant of the Month - Citrus


Growing citrus plants has never been easier due to the new hybrids available.

Ideal for a conservatory or greenhouse, Citrus trees need good light levels and frost protection over the winter period. Over the summer months, gradually move them outdoors by acclimatising them in a slightly shady spot.

Not only giving a wow factor as a specimen, it also helps purify the air in your home by removing benzene, formaldehyde, xylene and toluene.

Thriving best in bright, indirect light, Dracaenas are ideal for kitchens, bedrooms and living rooms. Easy to care for, they tolerate irregular watering rhythms and dry soil much better than too much water, which can make their roots rot.

  • Ideal for light shade, indirect light
  • Repot during the spring, every 2 years
  • Keep temperature to around 13°C / 55°F in winter
