Mandarin is a citrus species and these are moderately successful, lemon being the easiest. They need good warmth and sunshine in a conservatory or greenhouse.

Control scale insect with a systemic insecticide.

Keep the compost moist and feed with a citrus feed or an acid-lover feed every two weeks from April to August.
