Story Title: Citrus Lemonicious and Sublime
Episode: Four
Broadcast Date: 13th April 2013
Presenter: Trevor Cochrane

Lemons have been the staple backyard tree of Australian gardens for generations. This week Trevor introduces you to two dwarf varieties of citrus that will keep the tradition alive in our shrinking backyards.

Picked Fresh

  • Sublime is a dwarf Tahitian lime that grows on its own root system without needing grafting. It remains compact and produces large juicy, succulent limes
  • The Sublime plant grows to about 1.5m high when grown in the garden but if in a pot next to the BBQ you can expect it won't get over a metre high with a similar width. Plant it in full sun in a good quality soil and feed it every 4 to 6 months with a controlled release plant food
  • Lemonicious is a new release dwarf variety that grows on its own roots. It will reach about 1.5 metres in height with a similar width. Treat it like a normal lemon and plant in full sun and if in a pot in a top quality potting mix. Feed with controlled release plant food every 4 months and you will harvest delicious lemons throughout the year
  • These dwarf varieties are perfect for the smaller garden but produce full size fruit ensuring your culinary master pieces are always using the freshest ingredients
