This delightful gift not only looks beautiful but is a welcome plant for those keen on Asian Cooking. Young kaffir lime trees produce the tasty and fragrant leaves used in Thai green cooking.
The plant will live happily inside or in a conservatory in the winter and in the summer can make an attractive patio plant. However, it is not frost hardy.
Young plants are grown for their leaves, but mature plants can produce wonderful rough-skinned limes which are also used in Oriental cooking. Plants can be re-potted in the spring or summer if they are starting to out grow their existing pots– a citrus compost is best as it needs acid soil.
Care instructions included with your gift. It will be sent in a gold 1 L ceramic pot, plant 30cm tall.
