Kumquat trees thrive in full sun, meaning they need at least six hours of direct sunlight on average. Even better is if you can give it eight to 10 hours of sun, though this can be difficult in the wintertime. Indoors, place your plant’s container by your brightest window, and rotate the plant weekly. If possible, bring your potted kumquat outdoors to a balcony or patio in the summertime to rejuvenate it with plenty of natural light. Not getting enough light can hinder growth and fruit production.
Proper watering is essential for kumquat trees. The goal is to keep the soil lightly moist but not soggy. If the soil feels dry to the touch about 2 inches down, then it’s time to water until you see the water run out the bottom of the pot.
Kumquat is not toxic to humans or pets, but gnawing on the wood may cause intestinal compaction problems in dogs and pet birds.
We deliver five days a week, and please be advised that deliveries will take between 2-5 days.
We’ll text and email you the day before your delivery to give you a more precise time slot.
For deliveries outside London, you’ll receive an email with a link to your order status page once your order is out for delivery. We have a small number of postcodes, particularly in the Scottish Islands & Highlands, where we cannot offer next-day delivery and our lead time may take a little longer. Once you have placed your order, we will let you know about any changes to the delivery time for these postcodes.
If you’re not at home when delivery is attempted, our drivers will usually leave your order in your designated safe place (we’ll ask you for this at check out). If that’s not possible, delivery will be attempted up to two more times.
