Planting Your Tree

Keep your bare-root citrus, which comes with leaves and often other blooms and fruit, in a cool place. Plant it within a week of arrival, choosing a 10- to 14-inch pot with several drainage holes for a typical 2- to 3-year-old tree. In a pot that's too big overwatering tends to happen, which can lead to root rot and fungal problems.

Before planting, shake the tree gently to remove soil or sawdust clinging to its roots.
