If you want to grow citrus trees but don’t have the space, dwarf citrus trees are the answer. Not only are dwarf citrus trees perfect for porches, patios, indoors and small yards, but they also allow for growing multiple varieties in tropical and subtropical landscapes.
Potting: If you are going to plant your dwarf tree in a pot, use a 15-gallon pot (17-18” diameter) for smaller citrus trees like kumquats and calamondins and a 25+ gallon size (23” diameter) for other dwarf varieties.
Be sure your container drains freely. place 1-1.5 inches of small rock in the bottom of the pot for drainage and raise the pot off the ground if necessary. Extra holes can be drilled to ensure adequate drainage
Plant the tree in a high-quality container mix. We recommend Happy Frog Potting Soil for outdoor containers.
