Lovely, madferret! Are they going in larger pots I hope?? Be sure that Star Ruby gets lots and lots of heat and sunshine so your fruit sweetens up nicely :-)

Yes, nice big ceramic pots. They're just resting from their transit right now.

The grapefruit *may* remain in the porch as it will get a lot of light, and it will be warmer than outside, but the lime will be outside most of the summer I reckon.

Not sure if I should change the soil?

Just beautiful! I love the shape of those trees. I wish you all the best with them. Have fun!

Mike is our expert potted soil person, Madferret. I would definitely talk with Mike about the two recommended potting mixes, and the best method to go about re-potting. Since all my citrus are in the ground, I'm no expert with potted citrus. But Mike is :-)
