And Lemons

And Lemons (Citrus x meyeri)

Lemon fruits not ripe yet on my Lemon Meyer shrub, growing in the conservatory. The flowers are very fragrant.
Citrus meyeri is a cross between a citron and a manderin/pomelo hybrid.

Another treat in your conservatory :-)

Our lemon is still outside and the fruits are still very green!

You presumably bring in your lemon for the winter, Dd? My green fruits do ripen. I have used them in the past for 3 Citrus Fruit marmalade.

I've also had 9 Figs this year from my Dalmatie. Eaten them before I thought about photographing them.

Oh you lucky thing, how old is it, your fig tree? and yes we bring the Lemon under cover, although it did not fare well in the conservatory, much too warm, so the porch this winter!!

Dd, I bought the Fig in spring 2016 from your/our local G Beauty. Yes I think a cooler porch would be better for Citrus.

Looking promising. I put mine in the cold garden room this Autumn. They started to drop their leaves when I put them back into the concervatory. Obviously too warm once they had become used to being outside since late spring.

Homeb, Your Conservatory is heated, think that's too warm for Citrus. Mine just has frost protection, which is idea for Citrus and my Cymbidium Orchids, but too chilly/damp for people to sit in there in winter.
