How to Grow Citrus Trees
Did you know that citrus fruit is a good source of fiber and potassium? So why not grow them in your own backyard! You can either grow them in a pot or in the ground, but make sure you choose a location with enough space that gets a lot of sun.
Items you’ll Need:
E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Palm Mix
E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer
E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Fruit Tree Food
Step 1: Choose a location with enough space for your citrus tree that gets lots of sun, and choose the type of citrus you would like to grow (oranges, lemons, limes)
Step 2: Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root system - it should be deep enough so that the tips of the roots touch the bottom and place the tree in center of the planting hole
Step 3: Mix 50% E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Palm Mix to 50% native soil outside of the hole - sprinkle E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock and fill the remainder of the hole with the 50/50 mix
Step 4: Stake the tree if added support is needed
GROWING CITRUS TREES IN A POT
If you want to grow citrus trees in a pot, use dwarf citrus trees - they grow best in a container. Fill the whole pot with E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Palm Mix, it's ready to use right out of the bag! And don't forget to place the container in an area where it gets lots of sun.
Note: *Remember to start feeding in early Spring when first signs of new growth appear, with E.B. Stone Citrus & Fruit Tree Food and water regularly throughout the growing season.
