  • Not sure if its my laptop screen, but it looks like a  Laurel bush to me.

      Or what is left of one

    No they're not Laurel.  They have tiny thorns in places.  I asked the customer who cut them hard back and apparently they were supplied like that last year or the year before.

    The thorns and fleece make my think some type of Citrus, I'm not sure though. Crush a leaf does it smell of lemons or oranges. I've never seen Citrus that big outside in this country.

    Looks like a citrus to me. Doomed in this country if you ask me!

    Looks like a poorly lemon tree..

    • Lemon looks like it would be a good fit for the garden. You can get liquid feed. It looks pretty poorly. Still early days yet!

        I assume it's the cold that has done this?  I cut back some of the dead shoots and they are much healthier lower down.  With possibly some new leaves forming.

  • PRO

    There were a few dried up fruit/berries on them, the two photos are of two different trees.  More the size of cherries though (but clearly not cherries!)

  • citrus to me too, if it suvives after this hard winter wrap it in fleece next winter as they seem to be in a exposed location
