Citrus Kumquat Microcarpa
Full sun, lots of light.
Fill a spacious pot with low-lime, humus-rich soil that is well permeable. Citrus trees love water, but cannot tolerate a foot bath.
Yellowing leaves is a sign that the plant is too wet.
Plant food every month from late February to late August.
Hibernate in a greenhouse or in the window of a cool bedroom, cool, light and frost-free.
Whimsical branches, beautiful green leaves, sometimes with the first fruits on it, how wonderful 'Sorrento' do you want it? Citrus trees promise to become 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 maintenance and beautiful to look at. Just the feeling of long lazy summer evenings with a view of something that also thrives in Tuscany - before you know it, one can already take it home from the store. But which one will it be?
Rather a tree than a tree
All citrus trees look a bit alike. They are slender, densely branched trees with a slightly tousled crown. The choice is greatest in lemon and orange trees, these are also the most decorative and most cultivated on endurance. There are also grapefruit, kumquat and mandarin trees, but as 'entry-level citrus', lemon or orange is a great 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, more 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
If you have come 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 plateau with wheels. This way you can easily move the tree in the summer months to places where it has 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.
