DWARF CITRUS TREES

Dwarf citrus trees such as oranges, lemons, and limes are living conversation pieces. Daley's Nursery has been growing dwarf citrus trees that give delicious fruits for over 20 years. How? They graft a normal fruiting branch of a fruit tree (called a scion) to a dwarf tree rootstock to create a small tree that produces the fruit of its full-size cousin.

Their shiny foliage, bright fruits, and fragrant blossoms provide year-round enjoyment and is the reason they are so sought after as containerised pots.

Dwarf citrus trees require periodic repotting (every third year or so.) They have a shallow root system, so a wide container is far better than a deep one. When repotting, use a fresh mixture of one-third peat moss, one-third sand, and one-third sterile potting soil.

Citrus trees respond well to pruning. Keep all the dead branches trimmed off, and thin the plant to the three strongest trunks.
