Orange - Just Arrived

If you have space in the garden, then an Orange tree is an essential. They do very well in pots too, as long as the container is large and the citrus is grown on dwarfing rootstocks. Apart from the delicious and generous fruit that it will provide, the fragrance of the blossoms is intoxicating! Oranges like very well-drained, friable, slightly acid, loam soil. They need full sun, regular watering and protection from wind, especially during the summer months. They also require regular feeding, including large amounts of nitrogen and potassium for good fruiting. Prune only to remove dead, diseased wood. They will tolerate only light frosts.
