Citrus trees have pretty similar needs in terms of sun exposure, watering, fertilizer, and pruning. Maximum growth and production depend on getting these factors right, so knowing the particulars for each type of tree will help as you make your landscaping choices. Feel free to come in with questions, pictures, or even schedule an appointment for a landscape consultation.
Environmental Factors Play into Your Decision
When you buy a citrus tree from Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape, you can bet that they’ll grow in this area. We stock trees that grow in the USDA Zones 9-11. Some may require protection during extremely cold weather or require planting near water or as far southward as possible. Younger trees require more protection, and you can take this into consideration while browsing our stock.
The Best Planting Spots in Your Landscape Come into Play
The right spot in your landscape can affect your tree choice in two ways. Either you can pick a tree and then find the right spot to plant it, or you can identify the area that needs a tree and then match the right tree to that location.
Whether you choose the location before or after deciding on the tree, make sure that it checks all the boxes for what is needed for maximum growth. Location-related factors that can affect growth include the following:
- 15-feet of clearance above and below ground for root and canopy growth
- Protection from north winds by a building or screen
- Sandy, well-draining soil
- Plenty of full sun exposure
The Nursery Will Affect Your Tree Purchase
In the end, finding the best place to buy your tree is of the utmost importance. Your tree’s ability to thrive and produce over the long term will begin early. Choosing to shop with a nursery or tree farm that has plenty of experience and positive results is the way to go. By selecting Beltran’s Nursery and Landscape for your citrus tree purchase, your landscape will benefit from a healthy, nurtured specimen. Our team can help you with everything from planning to planting and everything in between.
