to the Global Orange Groves UK
We are retired now, no longer sell trees, but are available for advice if neededd.
in 1988, offering years of experience in growing and providing
healthy, productive Citrus trees at our own nursery in the
our nursery in Dorset, we carried a wide variety of both Citrus
Trees and other exotic tree varieties. The majority
of tree varieties were available for mail order delivery. With
many more available for collection direct from the nursery.
We have also written our own book; 'Success
With Citrus' which covers all aspects of caring and
keeping a Citrus Tree.
our selection of Orange Trees available for sale were Navel
Oranges such as Washington, Navelina, Newhall and Navelate.
Ornamental Oranges such as Buddha's Fingers (Cidro Digitado),
Bergamot, Seville Orange trees.
exotic fruit trees included banana trees, Chinese
dates, Sharon fruit and more.
citrus tree varieties also available were Lime trees, lemon
trees, clementines, satsumas, tangerine, mandarin, kumquats
and grapefruit trees.
addition we stilloffer our own specially formulated fertiliser,
produced to provide the best results in the growing and fruiting
of Citrus trees in the UK. We also have our citrus compost
available for collection from our own nursery.
of the diversity of citrus and exotic fruit tree varieties,
different leaf shapes, tree shape and maturity, the choice
of tree is a very personal one. We would therefore recommend
that you make the effort to visit the nursery where you will
be given a guided tour and have more than 1500 trees to choose
from. Where we are.
growing instructions were provided with each tree purchased,
but the main points are: Citrus trees prefer cool rather than
hot conditions. Keep your tree outside in Summer and protect
from frost in winter by placing in a conservatory or greenhouse.
Mist well when inside if temperatures rise to provide humidity,
or periodically take the tree outside to give a good hose
down. Keep free from pest attack and feed every week throughout
the year with a special citrus fertiliser.
