Do you want to add citrus plants to your indoor or outdoor garden?

Citrus plants are easy to grow and make a wonderful addition to your garden. If you are looking for potted citrus trees, we have a wide variety here at Hello Hello Plants & Garden Supplies. We have the best citrus trees, some of which are rare and difficult to find elsewhere.

Citrus trees can be grown in pots, planters, or garden beds and love to be planted in hot sunny positions. Citrus trees produce beautiful small white flowers in the spring and summer months, which then turn into their delicious juicy fruits in the winter time. They have attractive glossy green aromatic foliage and are great planted in pairs, rows, or inter-planted with other trees and shrubs. You can even plant a citrus hedge!


Citrus Planting & Care

The key to growing strong, healthy Citrus plants is to mound them up with rich, well drained loamy soil. We recommend incorporating 20% of our fertilized potting mix, with 80% of your parent soil. Citrus are what we call “Heavy Feeders” meaning they require lots of fertilisers or organic materials rich in nutrients to grow healthily and happily. To create a rich mound, incorporate good quality household compost, which includes crushed eggshells and vegetable scraps. Cultivate a circle 4-5ft wide free of grass and weeds; gradually mound this area up with your compost. Keep the compost away from the base of your tree.

Citrus will grow best in a site that is protected from strong winds. Grow your Citrus in the full sun; lemons will grow in part shade. When growing Citrus in a pot it is best to plant them in a large half-wine barrel or large plastic pot for long-term growth.

When you purchase your Citrus it will be growing in a pot or a plastic bag. Gently slide the plant out of its pot or carefully cut the bag away from the rootball. Do not tease or tickle the plant’s roots. Rapid plant death can occur when a plant’s roots are teased or tickled particularly during the warm summer months. Teasing a plant’s roots can damage the roots and disrupts the plant’s ability to draw up adequate moisture. Plant death can occur within three days after potting or planting.

Fertilise every three months with slow-release fertiliser specially formulated for Citrus plants such as the those below.
