When life gives you mandarins, put a Citrus Tree in your home and imagine you’re in the Mediterranean! No really – this plant has scented flowers and is able to produce small mandarins.
This tree is native to Italy, where it is commonly used to make mandarin pie. Although most houseplant fans just like to grow the fruit ornamentally.
Whilst this plant can survive in temperatures as low as -6°C, it loves being warm and thrives in tropical climates. Trim in the spring just as the new growth starts to sprout.

Jo’s Top Tip
These are fairly tolerant trees, however just watch how often you water them as they dislike wet conditions. They won’t be happy if they become water-logged.
Pot type and color may vary depending on stock availability.
