The Best Time to Plant Citrus Trees


A backyard citrus tree provides a heavenly scent, whether when in bloom or through its aromatic, glossy leaves. Most citrus trees provide gradually ripening fruit over a long season. However, citrus trees are frost-tender; plant them at the right time for the best results.

Planting Time


Seasonal Changes

  • Consider the location's exposure throughout the year. A low, sunny area of the yard may be ideal in summer, but cold air pools in low pockets of the landscape and may damage the tree in winter. Choose southern exposures or plant trees near heat-retaining walls in borderline zones.
