HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR CITRUS TREES
Holmberg Farms Edition
The most vital aspect of growing a viable Citrus Medley tree is keeping the growth of each of the varieties equalized. Certain varieties are more vigorous growers and can overtake the less vigorous varieties. With regular pruning you can keep a well-balanced Citrus Medley Tree. During the growing season pruning should be done every month, thinning out all variety's as needed.
Another important aspect in the care of your Citrus Medley Tree is removing sprouts from the root stock. These will appear from time to time on the trunk of the tree below the graft union on the main stem. They will also sprout from ground level; any of these sprouts will take nutrients from your varieties and must be removed. The sole purpose of the root stock is to provide nourishment for your tree and assist in the resistance to disease.
Yet another import aspect of caring for your Citrus Medley Tree is pruning any inward growing branches. Try to keep the center of the tree thinned out so that light can get filtered in to the center of the tree. Branches that are growing long and not branching are called shoots and they absorb a lot of energy from the tree and make the tree unbalanced, these should be pruned so they can branch out.
Probably the most important function in growing your Citrus Medley Tree is watering. Moisture level must be checked daily, in most applications watering every other day is sufficient during the hot months, with trickle watering saturating the pot or the ground each time being best. Citrus do not like wet feet but an adequate moisture level must be maintained to maintain tree vigor.
Your Citrus Medley Tree also prefers full sun, but can be maintained in as little as a ½ day of full sun. Best if planted or placed in an area sheltered from the wind.
Planting can be done during any season, but best late in the day while it is cooler. Soak the tree for at least a few hours prior to planting. If the site is compacted disturb the soil approximately 2-3x the diameter of the root ball. This can help deter the surrounding soil from pulling moisture away from the root ball of the plant. We recommend purchasing a bag of slow release fertilizer before planting your Citrus Medley Tree. Read the manufacturers label and check the recommended rates. As you are filling in the soil around your Citrus Medley Tree stop 2 – 3 inches from the top of the root ball and place the labels recommended rate of fertilizer evenly around the root ball. You can then fill in the rest of the soil. Using soil from the hole, form a watering outside the root ball and fill it with water. Keep watered until established as weather dictates. Also check the fertilizer label and top dress, evenly placing the fertilizer on top of the root ball as needed.
