Hi there,Can anyone help identifiy this plant,It's been in a pot for some years,not sure how many, possibly six or seven I'm going to plant it in the garden so need to know what conditions it requires. Thanks in anticipation.

    It’s some sort of citrus. Lemon maybe. Has it always been outside?

  • Hi Asarum, I don't really know, It belonged to my late Mother and my father doesn't know either, but I certainly can remember mum buying a lemon plant some years ago, so sounds very likely. Many thanks

    Don't think a lemon will survive outside in the winter though. Monty Don brings his inside
  • Thanks everyone for advice, Since being outside  has not done it any good, I've potted it on in a bigger pot, with recommended compost and put it in the greenhouse untill next summer, hopefully it will have recovered by then.
  • Update on lemon tree, It looks a lot better now,
    thanks for all advice. Sorry about pic. on its side,not very good at this

  • Lovely healthy looking plant.  :)
  • Thanks Dovefromabove for rotating photo it was first time I posted using iPad I think I’ve got that sorted now. Looking forward to getting some flowers on the plant, maybe next year.

    @Katrina mg  :)  the glitch means that pictures taken in portrait format are revolved into landscape ... however if you trim just a millimetre off the photo it'll stay the right way up.
    Photos taken in landscape are fine, unless their too big, in which case they don't appear at all ... just reduce in size and it'll be fine  :)
