Growing citrus in greenhouses
I live in high desert AZ (zone 8a), just outside of of a climate where citrus can live outside all year. I recently bought the small Harbor Freight greenhouse to house my potted citrus during the winter so I wouldn't have to worry about them. While it has been great as far as freeze/frost protection, something else unexpected has happened.
They EXPLODED with growth as soon as I put them into the greenhouse this winter, most likely as a result of the relatively hot temperatures inside the greenhouse during the day. Since we have cloudless skies nearly everyday, the temps in the greenhouse get into the 90s almost everyday, and then drop to 35-55F overnight. The trees obviously like it right now, but I'm wondering how their fruit production may be affected with such a strange climate.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
