How to Grow Citrus Trees

Items you'll need: Citrus Trees, Shovel, Garden stakes, E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Palm Mix, E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer, E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Fruit Tree Food

Step 1: Choose a location with enough space for your citrus tree that gets lots of sun, and choose the type of citrus you would like to grow (oranges, lemons, limes)

Step 2: Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root system - it should be deep enough so that the tips of the roots touch the bottom and place the tree in center of the planting hole

Step 3: Mix 50% E.B. Stone Organic Citrus & Palm Mix to 50% native soil outside of the hole - sprinkle E.B. Stone Sure Start Organic Fertilizer on the roots to help reduce transplant shock and fill the remainder of the hole with the 50/50 mix

Step 4: Stake the tree if added support is needed
