In seventeenth century England, as in Italy today, citrus trees were often grown in large pots which were kept outside in the summer and wheeled back indoors (into a heated orangery) to over winter, something they still do on a small scale at Chiswick House in London. There is an orangery - Dutch influenced - in the grounds of Ham House, and another, well documented, in Kew gardens, where it is currently being restored.
