When and How to Switch Citrus from In-ground to Containers?
The dilemma. I have two in-ground citrus planted in the wrong place. I need that space desperately for something else. I have two container citrus that are actually doing much better than those in the ground.
I rescued these (Improved Myers Lemon and Bearss Lime) as tiny dying trees in tiny bands on sale from Walmart 1 1/2 years ago. They are semi-dwarf, which actually means they are basically standard. They are growing like weeds, and I can't have them do that where they are. I will use the Gritty Mix Al designed for desert dwellers in my containers.
When can I transplant them (time of year)?
What is the best way to get them out of the ground with the least stress?
I am going to co-post this in the container and Citrus forums also because I need advice ASAP.
Thanks for your suggestions!
