This magnificent Calamondin orange tree is very decorative when in flower, but also bears beautifully colourful little oranges in the winter
It can be easily grown indoors and flowers regularly throughout the year, particularly from March to June, with pretty, highly fragrant white flowers.
The following care tips will help your recipient enjoy this plant for as long as possible:
- Indoors: Water regularly but not excessively as soon as the earth ball is dry. In winter, also avoid over-watering as this can suffocate the roots, which should never be left in stagnant water. Place it in a sunny spot but avoid direct sunlight at the hottest times of the day and do not place it close to a radiator.
- Outside : From May to October, take advantage of the fine weather put your orange-tree outside in your garden or on your terrace or balcony, but avoid frost or draughts. Water it more frequently but still moderately, as excess water will cause the leaves to yellow and drop (although this can be reversed).
