Citrus trees need plenty of light, good draining soil, and ample water. You should keep a perimeter around the tree free from grass and weeds that would compete for nutrients. Since the tree will hopefully grow (with proper care and time), you should anticipate growth both above and below ground. When possible, give your citrus trees a break, or screen, that protects it from northern winds. Bear in mind that you can also grow citrus as container-bound plantings to easily move them indoors when the temperatures drop.
Appropriate water application to your citrus trees is important as well. After initially planting your citrus trees, you should water thoroughly, giving your tree a thorough soaking. Following up this first watering with regular watering that keeps the soil damp but not soggy is critical. Too much dryness will leave your tree lifeless, but too much water will rot the roots and kill it too.
Fertilizing a citrus is highly important. You should use a citrus fertilizer during the growing season. Make sure that the fertilizer consists of phosphorus, potassium, and nitrogen, and bear in mind that iron, zinc, and manganese will also help. Take care to apply according to directions and at the right time to prevent damage or waste.
Pruning for citrus is often unnecessary, but it will keep your trees pretty when aesthetics is important. You can prune to whatever shape or size you like, but take care to prune after fruit harvesting is done for the year. Avoid pruning during the winter because it could leave the area vulnerable to freezing temperatures or frost.
