I just want to say thank you to all of the regular posters here. I'm receiving 8 patio citrus trees on dwarf stock tomorrow from Brite Trees. I'm growing for ornamental and fruiting purposes. I've been reading and reading and reading old posts concerning potting mixes and fertilizing practices and different varieties and different stocks. I've really learned a lot and I think I'll have success with my little patio grove. You have really posted a trove of knowledge here and I just want to let you know that I appreciate the knowledge and experience you've shared here. Thanks!

Great, Beth, glad you were able to glean lots of good information from the forum. Many very experienced container citrus folks on the forum, so lots of great info. Good luck with your new trees, and be sure to post up some photos when they come.

Patio citrus in FL, gets really hot. Be sure to double pot or use some other means to keep the roots from getting over heated.

That many on the patio will be so fragrant at bloom time!

Good Luck- Larry

Thanks! I received them today and they are all beautiful. Of course tonight dipped into the low thirties so my little trees came inside. I'll repot them in the next few days.
Thanks, Larry, for the double-pot idea, that's brilliant! Solves the issue of the patio pots being much larger than the pots the little trees came in also.

Welcome and your welcome! I learn a lot here too.._0)

The pot in pot idea is a great one! I also use this method and it is a life saver..

I use a much bigger pot and then rest the one my tree is in in it surrounded by mulch...Works like a charm.

I put my pots in a watermelon patch. The sun never hit the pot.

You're welcome Beth. I learned it from Bill Adams, my Master Gardener Mentor. He is brilliant. He has a Masters Degree in Horticulture. He mostly does photo layouts for gardening and landscaping magazines now. He does some guest speaking for
gardening groups. Don't miss a chance to see one.
