Why We Love It

Recreate the atmosphere of warmer climes under your own roof with the Calamondin Orange (Citrus x microcarpa).

Glossy green leaves set the backdrop for a profusion of white flowers, borne in spring and summer, followed by vivid orange fruits.

While plants will be the centre of attention in a bright, warm room, they’ll thrive on patios outdoors during the summer.

Make sure to bring this cheerful, vigorous citrus back indoors or into a conservatory before the first frosts.

How to Plant

Into the Ground

Before you do anything, choose a location that is well-drained and free from weeds. Then grab your spade, watering tool, soil and well-rotted organic matter.

  1. Dig a hole that is twice the size of the fruits rootball.
  2. Gently remove your plant from its original container, teasing out the roots.
  3. Hold your fruit in place and then backfill soil with a spade or by hand.
  4. Water thoroughly then cover the surface with organic matter.

Into a Pot

  1. Choose a pot that’s slightly bigger than the plant's temporary container.
  2. Ensure the new pot has drainage holes so excess water can escape.
  3. Part-fill the new pot with a quality citrus or loam-based compost.
  4. Remove the temporary container and place the plant in the new pot, so the rootball sits slightly below the pot’s rim (it’ll prevent water from running over the edge).
  5. Fill the gaps around the edges with compost, firm in gently and stand the pot in a saucer..
  6. Water well using tepid rain water to settle your new plant in.
