Specific planting directions depend on the tangerine variety you choose, all Clementine Trees must be grown in the proper growing zones (or indoors, if you live in a cooler area). The most important factorsare proper sunlight and watering. Keep in mind that most Clementines prefer well-drained soil and full sun, or 6 to 8 hours of sunlight per day.
From there, planting is easy! Find an area with well-drained soil or select a container large enough to accommodate the tree’s root ball, place your tree, and backfill the soil. Lastly, water the surrounding soil to settle your tree’s roots and mulch to conserve moisture.
