Repotting my Key Lime in Al's Gritty Mix?

drake36May 5, 2011

I am new to the forum. I have been lurking for a few weeks and researching Al's gritty mix (thanks Al for all the information) and thanks to everyone who posts their knowledge on here. I want to re-pot my key lime tree however it is putting out some new growth and flowers. I was wondering if it is OK to bare root it now and put it in the gritty mix? It is currently in MG Cactus and Citrus soil and has been for about a year and a half. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome Drake

I would do it now while your tree is in a very healthy active state, and I mean both states, since trees respond much better to longer days, and while in good health.

Happy growing and enjoy your tree and summer.
