CITRUS

Citrus may not hardy in Britain but can be grown in summer, outdoors in pots, then brought into a cool, (frost-free), bright environment for the winter, ideally a conservatory, glazed porch or sunny windowsill in a cool room. Limes need a little more warmth. The fragrant flowers appear all year round, but are especially abundant in late winter, and fruit ripens up to 12 months later, so they often flower and fruit at the same time.
