First Time Citrus Grower - Four Winds Growers- Worth It?
I'm new to this website, but eager to learn. Here goes nothing.
My question is on the topic of dwarf citrus trees. I have recently become interested in acquiring several (maybe one to begin with) dwarf citrus trees. These I would grow in pots and bring indoors for the winter. For my first I was thinking along the lines of a Moro blood orange, or a Meyer lemon. These are two of my favorite citruses.
Through this website, and other sources, I have been informed, generally, that the highest quality citrus trees can be found at Four Winds Growers. (As I live in zone 5b, in Northeast Ohio, a local purchase is out of the question.) Please correct me if there is a higher quality, more diverse source.
My question is: does size matter in this case? They offer 1- and 2-year-old specimens. Both are ridiculously expensive, but I believe the 1-year-old trees are closer to my price point.
Again- my question:
Is it really worth it to purchase the larger, bareroot trees?
Thank you for your assistance.
