Full sun, lots of light.
Fill a large pot with low-lime, humus-rich soil that is well permeable. Citrus trees love water, but can not stand a foot bath.
Yellowing leaves is a sign that the plant is too wet.
Plant food every month from the end of February to the end of August.
Cool, light and frost-free let overwinter in a greenhouse or in the window of a cool bedroom.
Whimsical branches, beautiful green leaves, sometimes with the first fruits, how blessed 'Sorrento' do you want it? Citrus trees promise to become the big terrace trend of 2016. They do not take up much space, but offer a lot of experience. In addition, they are low-maintenance and beautiful to see. Just the feeling of long languid summer evenings with a view of something that also thrives in Tuscany - before you know it, one can already come home from the store. But which is it going to be?
Rather a tree than a tree
All citrus trees look a bit like each other. They are slender, densely branched trees with a little tangled crown. The choice is greatest in lemon and orange trees, which are also the most decorative and most grown on endurance. There are also grapefruit, kumquat and mandarin trees, but as 'entry citrus', lemon or orange is an excellent choice. It is worth investing in an already larger copy. Not only does it have more impact on your terrace, the slightly larger trees are also stronger, better developed and more likely to stay than the ukkies. The leaves should be nice and green and seeing a few small fruits is also a good sign.
Mobile citrus, always handy
Have you come home together, then it is important to find a good spot. Citrus trees like to stand in a large, heavy pot that is not immediately surrounded by a summer storm. To make it easy you put it on a platform with wheels. So you can easily move the tree in the summer months to the places where there is 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.
The Citrus is not suitable for consumption.
