Orange trees have always been associated with love & committment.
Citrus are not hardy in cold countries and must be kept in a pot, in a conservatory, greenhouse or on a cool well lit windowsill in the cold months. In severe weather, a heated conservatory or fleece is recommended. Do not keep near a hot radiator.
In the summer months, citrus benefit from being outside in a sunny protected area.
This will strengthen the plant and help control any lurking pests which may be hanging around.
