I ordered some new citrus trees from Four Winds. Again I'm very impressed with the packaging. UPS 3 day shipping arrived in 2 days. Trees undamaged with no loss of leaves.

This is a 2 year old Minneola

These are one each of Page Mandarin, Yuzu and Cara Cara Navel.

And the Minneola and the Cara Cara are about to bloom.
Wish me luck!

Woodrok: Just beautiful!!

I love every tree I have recieved from them. I have never seen a 2 year old tree. Not bad and they are some blooming!

Make sure you give them a great start right from the beginning by putting them into a great soilless mix and you will find your trees much easier to please.

Good luck and thanks for sharing.

You will be very successful making many friends here.


RE: My New babies

Thanks for the pics. those trees look wonderful.

oh and it looks like that little evergreen tree could use some water, lol.


RE: My New babies

Pay no attention to the pot in the corner. That was a failed expirement with a redwood cutting.

RE: My New babies

No soilless mix for these trees Mike, they will be going into the ground in a few days. It is warming up nicely here. My other citrus are starting to put on new growth and bloom already. I will post some pics of them in another thread later.

I wish I lived in a place I could put mine in the ground. That is fantastic.

There are many here that are excellent at starting citrus new in yard soil and you will without fail be helped if you ask. It seems overwhelming agreed on that amending a mix and pouring in a hole is not recommended. Look into to that..

Your trees are so nice looking and please let us know how they do.

By the way, as Mike said, don't forget to water that little tree to the

You know we are kidding. Sometimes it is fun to have a good time here.

Take care and great meeting you.


RE: My New babies

Thanks! I know ya'll were kidding. "Pay no attention to the pot in the corner" was a joke on the wizard of oz. (Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain)

another one

I am a little concerned about this one though. It is a 2 year old Moro blood orange that fire ants got into. It totally exfoliated prior to killing off the ants and that one limb came back fine 3 months ago. The others are still green but haven't done anything yet. I'm debating pruning them off and training the remaining limb vertically to straighten the tree up.

RE: My New babies

Nice new trees, Woodrok!
(I just checked out your other beauties, too).

The Moro above still looks viable to me.
Keep those limbs for a while to see if they re-sprout.
