I was very fortunate recently to receive one of Dobies of Devon's beautiful Orange trees; once ordered I was slightly concerned with how a live tree was going to be delivered as I've only ever ordered bulbs and seeds through the post before..... oh and caterpillars......
But I needn't have worried! A few days after my order I received a very large box, clearly labelled 'this way up' (and it was!) and safely packed inside the box was a very large orange tree.

Why did I choose an orange tree? I don't have the greenest of fingers to be honest - unless we're talking Hulk mode - and that's a whole different story! But the Orange tree is hardy, will produce fruit within 18 months and best of all will produce strongly scented white flowers - this I'm rather excited about as we've just started seeing the first buds appear this week!
