Plan Before You Shop
Before you head down to our location at either Punta Gorda or on Pine Island, educate yourself about attributes that will affect the growth and productivity of your citrus tree purchase. We make it easy for the DIY minded homeowner, the professional landscaper, or the novice who’d just like a bit of guidance.
Plan for Future Growth
The citrus tree that you purchase will grow to be much bigger. The location where your citrus tree should live ought to be have a 15-foot circumference that’s free from interference. Structures like septic tanks below ground, homes at ground level, and power lines above ground level all stand to become issues down the road as your tree’s roots, height, and canopy grow.
Plan for Sufficient Sunlight
The pattern of sunshine in your landscape should also inform your citrus tree purchase. A critical component of your tree’s growth, sunshine should be an optimized part of your tree’s environment. Ideally, you’ll find a place as far south as possible, near water, and screened from the north.
The number of citrus trees that you bring into your backyard will depend on how much space you have. You may have a single, small container-bound citrus or a full orchard. Each tree should have a minimum of 15 foot spacing, running north to south.
