Bergamot Orange Tree

Bergamot Orange Tree Code: CTR001

£85.95 inc. p&p 85.9500 In Stock New

Citrus x bergamia

This heavily scented orange is one of the easiest citrus to grow in the UK. Whilst the fruits are not usually eaten raw, the skin and zest are used extensively across the world in perfumes and most commonly in the UK as the essential flavour of Early Grey Tea. They can also be used in place of Seville Oranges for making marmalade. A compact and evenly growing tree makes it ideal for patio planting.


Pollination: Self-fertile.


Plant size: 5.5 litre pot / 60-90cm (2-3ft) from base of pot.


Available for delivery: all year.


 

Citrus are a great addition to any garden and can be grown for many years in pots or planted in the soil in those parts of the country with a reasonably mild climate. The fruits ripen from the late Autumn until mid-spring, but the tree is active at all times of the year with flowers, fruitlets and mature fruits on the tree all at the same time. Citrus will thrive in temperatures above 5ºC and cope with occasional drops below freezing for short periods. During the winter months if the temperature drops below freezing, trees in pots should be moved to a glasshouse, garage or shed and trees planted in the open ground should be wrapped with fleece whilst temperatures stay low. Citrus are not house plants and will not succeed in the environment of central heating.

 

Our citrus trees are grafted on to Poncirus trifoliata rootstock and are 3-4 years old. They are supplied in 5.5 litre pots and are 60-90cm (2-3ft) tall on despatch (measured from the base of the pot). Trees are usually available all year except from April to late May when the new growth is coming through.
