It's Easy to Plant your Citrus Planting Kit


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Citrus Planting Kit.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Citrus Planting Kit gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Citrus Planting Kit again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Planting Kit is an A+
I wasn't sure about ordering the planting kit, but since it was a gift I decided it would be really nice to be able to have all supplies available immediatly and not have to go to the store and purchase a pot, dirt, etc. IT WAS A GREAT IDEA!!! I was at my daughters new home when the tree arrived and UPS made sure we where home (they came at 7:30 pm). She got to plant it immediately! She was very very happy! Me too!

Excellent Orange Tree
The orange tree arrived in Great condition !! I planted it in the container with the soil I ordered with it and placed it outside to get sunlight. About 2 months later it bloomed and I have about 6 small oranges now. As cold weather is approaching I'm going to bring it inside for the winter. Now I have to find out how and what kind of fertilizer to use.

Not enough instructions for me
The instructions that we got with the kit didn't say how to use the fertilizer tablets... The sheet that was on the review was more informative. We put in one tab because we didn't want to over fertilize... Now I guess we will go back and dig in and put in the other two tabs

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
