|Planting and Care Tip:
||All citrus require full sun. Citrus are heavy feeders. Fertilize in late winter before bloom and regularly throughout growing season. Do not fertilize in winter. Prune in early spring, after fear of frost to desired shape. Newly planted should not be pruned for the first 2-3 years, except to remove suckers below the scion graft.
