#ProPlantTips for Care:

Combo high-density grown trees need just a touch of extra pampering. Provide this combo Citrus with a very sunny area with plenty of direct sunlight for the most fruit. Citrus like to dry out between waterings and do not like soggy soil at all! Keep your trees in a protected location and give them a regular schedule of fertilizer, feeding them an acid-loving formula according to package directions.

Protecting Citrus From Chill

Although Citrus can grow year-round in warmer regions (zones 9 and 10), they can also thrive in colder areas (zones 4 to 7) as long as the trees are brought indoors before the first frost of winter.

In zone 8, you can cover your tree in the event of a cold snap or unexpected overnight freeze. Citrus will need to be planted in a sheltered spot to avoid the worst of the chill, and not planted in a low area that collects cold air. If a spot like that is unavailable, or you are in a chill-prone climate, then you are safer planting Citrus Trees in a large, deep container with wheels to easily move them to a protected location or indoors when needed.

In cold growing zones, begin slowly acclimating your tree indoors in the fall, or into a protected location, eventually moving your tree inside. Indoor plants need a bright indirect sun window, greenhouse, sunroom, or enclosed patio for the winter. In spring, reverse this process and begin acclimating your tree to again be back out in the full sun all summer. This reduces stress and leaf drop.

  • Full sun and moderate moisture
  • Must have very well-drained slightly acidic soil
  • Prune to size in late winter & provide regular fertilizer
  • Always remove any dead, diseased branching and any shoots coming up by the roots
