One of the pleasures of a subtropical garden is plucking fresh sweet fruit straight from the tree. Imagine fresh orange juice for breakfast! Turn the peel into marmalade! Beekeepers - let your bees feed on the sweet-scented blossom to make fragrant honey for breakfast toast! And if you live somewhere that gets a little frost in winter, citrus plants like oranges will grow happily in large pots while small, for moving indoors during colder months.
