One Year-Old Trees
“One year-old” trees generally are 12"-16" tall with a trunk diameter of about 1/4". They are growing in a 4 x 10" (or in a few cases a 4” x 6”) container of soil. Within a month of delivery, it is best to repot into a larger container (~8-10" diameter) to give the roots more room to grow.
Two Year-Old Trees
The two year-old trees will be available for sale in FALL 2013. They are approximately 20-24" tall with a trunk diameter of about 3/8". They are growing in a 5 x 12" container of soil. Repot into a 10-12" diameter pot within a few months of delivery, or when roots begin to show through drainage holes.
Three Year-Old Trees
The “three year-old” trees have more extensive branching, about ½” trunk diameter and a larger root system than the other two sizes. They have been grown in a 3.4 gallon nursery pot. When prepared for shipping, soil is removed from the tree’s roots and they are carefully packed with moist wood shavings in a plastic bag. Bare-rooted citrus trees should be planted in a 12-14” container upon arrival. They can also be planted directly in the ground in suitable climates. Since this size tree ships without soil, it is OK for shipping to Hawai’i.
