Citrus tree delivery

Some people like to grow from seeds, and we respect that. However, we also like to expedite the process to allow you to enjoy the fruits of your labour sooner rather than later. That's why we grow whole sapling fruit trees for planting around your yard.

Citrus trees can get pretty big, even in their sapling state. If you have a small car, and want your new trees transported safely, get in touch with All Green. We can organise delivery of your citrus trees to homes and businesses all around the Melbourne area. Check out our delivery page for more info.

Frequently asked questions

What are the best citrus trees to grow in Melbourne?

There are many great kinds of citrus trees you can grow in Melbourne. You should pick varieties that do well in cold winters, and that will endure hot, dry summers each year. These include:

  • Sweet oranges are a good choice. Citrus fruits tend to move towards the more sour palette in colder climates, so you can offset this by choosing a sweeter variety.
  • Blood orange fruits tend to ripen in mid-winter. You'll have a full harvest ready to put in your favourite cocktails as soon as spring begins.
  • Lemons, although tolerant of heat, can be sensitive to frost. They'll do well in Melbourne if they can get some sun during the day.
  • Cumquats are also commonplace around the suburbs of Melbourne. They are great for making marmalade and other preserves.
  • Finger limes are a classic Australian native. They will do well all over Melbourne, in all kinds of soil content.

Why should I plant citrus trees?

Citrus trees are both aesthetically pleasing to the eye, and have a range of practical uses around the home. These subtropical trees bear some stunning colours including orange, yellows, reds, and greens. They can also be used:

  • In the kitchen —  homegrown citrus fruits are great to have in the fruit bowl as a quick snack, or to play a flavourful part of other meals, like preserved lemons.
  • In the bathroom — the oils present in the skins of citrus fruits can be extracted and used to give the home a refreshing, summer scent.
  • To clean — lemon juice is an effective but gentle natural cleaner, and works well on metals, clothing stains, and mildew.
  • Outside — both lemon and orange oils are great at keeping insects and other pests from attacking your skin.

I want to plant small citrus trees in my garden. What should I choose?

You shouldn't limit yourself just because you are working in a small space. At All Green Nursery & Garden, we have a range of dwarf citrus trees that will bring colour, life, and fruit to your deck or courtyard. These can usually be grown in pots. Drop in and see our team at Hoppers Crossing to learn more about growing dwarf citrus trees.

Do you deliver citrus trees?

We certainly do. We know that citrus fruit trees can be awkward to cart around, no matter their size. If you'd like to arrange an order of citrus trees to your home or business around Melbourne, get in touch with our friendly customer service team. They will be able to advise you on costs.
