Citrus trees require great deals of sunlight so shaded locations are generally not suitable for planting citrus trees. From the standpoint of soil, the ideal is well-drained sandy loam. However, these trees will grow in a variety of soils providing that drainage is good. It is important to ensure that when planting your new citrus tree that it receives a good fertilization using a fertilizer formulated specifically for citrus trees, as well as a beneficial citrus mycorrhizal fungus treatment so as to help the roots take up and metabolize the nutrients in the soil. A good recommendations for an ongoing fertilization program for your citrus tree is the TreeHelp Annual Kit For Citrus Trees which includes a fertilizer formulated specifically for citrus trees, a citrus mycorrhizal treatment and a special biostimulant to help promote new root growth and reduce transplant shock on newly planted trees.
If the occasional period of freezing weather is expected in your region, choose a site on the protected south side of a building as well as prepare to wrap the juvenile tree during extreme cold periods.
