Full sun, lots of light.
Fill a large pot with low-calcium, humus-rich soil that is well-permeable. Citrus trees love water, but cannot stand a foot bath.
Yellowing leaves is a sign that the plant is too wet.
Plant nutrition every month from the end of February to the end of August.
Winter, cool and light and frost free in a greenhouse or in the window of a cool bedroom.
Freakish branches, nice green leaves, sometimes with the first fruits on it, how blissful 'Sorrento' do you want it? Citrus trees promise to be the big terrace trend of 2016. They do not take up much space, but still offer a lot of experience. In addition, they are low in maintenance and beautiful to see. Just the feeling of long, lazy summer evenings with a view of something that also thrives in Tuscany - before you know it, one can go home from the store. But what will it be?
Rather a tree than a tree
All citrus trees look a bit like each other. They are slender, densely branched trees with a somewhat tangled crown. The choice is the largest in lemon and orange trees, these are also the most decorative and the most grown on endurance. There are also grapefruit, kumquat and mandarin trees, but as 'entry citrus', lemon or orange is a good choice. It is worth investing in a somewhat larger copy. Not only does it have more impact on your terrace, the slightly larger trees are also stronger, better developed and more permanent than the ukkies. The leaves must be nice and green and already seeing a few small fruits is also a good sign.
Mobile citrus, always handy
If you came home together, it is important to find a good place. Citrus trees like to be in a large, heavy pot that does not immediately turn around during a summer storm. To make it easy for you, place it on a tray with wheels. This way you can easily move the tree in the summer months to the places with the most sun. Moreover, it is a simple way to move the tree to the greenhouse, shed or living room when the nights get colder again.
The Citrus is not suitable for consumption.
