Growing Citrus Trees In The Ground - Step By StepFirst step: Remove the citrus tree carefully from its original packaging and lightly mist the exposed roots with water. Gently tug on the roots to loosen them from their tightly compacted form.
Second step: You will need a small shovel for this step. Dig a hole at least two times deeper and wider than the citrus tree root ball. Make sure the location you chose will allow the citrus tree to receive at least eight hours of sunlight per day. Add two to three scoops of sand into the hole and mix to combine.
Third step: Place the roots of the citrus tree in a container filled with water. Carefully swish the plant back and forth to remove the packing soil from the root ball. Place the Citrus tree into the dug hole and cover with soil.
Fourth step: This is a very important step due to the fact that you do not want to over water the tree. Keep the soil moist with regular watering every other day for the first couple of weeks. After the first couple of weeks taper only water your tree to one to two times a week. Apply a regular feeding of organic fertilizer according to the label instructions.
