Lemon Myrtle

Plant arrived in good condition. Potted out the following day into a larger pot and pruned slightly at the time. Used the leaves off the prunings naturally. Already pruned it again since delivery to keep the tree bushy and maintain our tea leaf supply. Very happy with the plant. Will repot into a larger pot as needed but not required just yet.

We enjoy the aroma of the lemon myrtles growing along the creek close by and we wanted to capture the same aroma close to our house. They are performing well and we are looking forward to blossom time. A very nice native tree. Thanks to Daleys staff for producing another example of quality trees.

My lemon myrtle in Melbourne actually does better in part-day sun and dappled shade. Full sun is too harsh.

Looks very promising, but a lack of sun, watering and attention has caused it to grow slowly. Very beautiful even when so small, the leaves turning from almost furry to very glossy over time.

This is a stunning tree.  The growth this season has been very fast, despite regular harvesting of the leaves for cooking and tea.  Very low maintenance and extremely hardy.

Lemon Myrtle Panacotta (dessert) - to die for. Subtle flavour and I was surprised by how much flavour I got out of the leaves by just a few minutes over the heat. I thought I was going to have to grind them. Definitely try it!!

I absolutely love the smell of the leaves when crushed. This plant demands more water than I give it, and always looks slightly wilted, but I did plant it on thery poor soil and is competing with another tree.

I love the smell of the leaves when crushed. I use them dried in cooking and add to tea. Better flavour than lemons. Lovely when it flowers in autumn. Stands up to weather extremes. Pest free.
