Frequently Asked Questions
Do you only sell citrus?
Yes, we are strictly a citrus nursery.
What types of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check and cashier's check. At this time, we do not accept credit cards. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
How should I advise my customers on planting their trees?
Select a location large enough to accommodate the tree. Dig the hole approximately six inches wider and one inch deeper than the pot that you purchased it in. Remove the tree from the pot and place it in the hole, insuring that the soil doesn't go any higher than approximately one inch above the soil line from the pot it was in. Add soil in around the root ball and tamp the soil. Do not add any fertilizer or manure when planting the tree. Also, make sure that the soil that is used does not contain any nitrogen, as this will burn the root ball. If desired, a dry fertilizer can be added above ground to the tree no sooner than 2 weeks after planting.
Do you sell to the public?
Unfortunately, we do not sell trees directly to the public at this time, as we are strictly a wholesale nursery. We sell to a number of reputable nurseries around the state, however, and are certain that you will find our trees there. Please contact us for a nursery reference in your hometown.
How should the trees be fertilized?
We recommend fertilizing quarterly, especially in the spring and fall. Keep in mind, less fertilizer more often is better. There are many fertilizers available to the public that all work equally well. Be sure to look for one with Iron, Zinc and Manganese.
How often should the tree be watered?
Overwatering is a major problem with citrus. They like to be deep watered, but then left to dry out slightly before re-watering. Your watering schedule will need to be changed according to the weather (ie. More often in the summer). Newly planted citrus will need to be watered more frequently for the first two weeks or so, but then the length of time between watering can be increased.
