Citrus Trees in Fabric Smart Pots
I have several citrus trees that are currently in 5 gal nursery containers that I'm planning to transplant into 20 gal fabric smart pots in the next few days. The trees are around 7-9' tall. Ultimately, I will probably put them into 30 gal half wine barrels in a couple of years but still have some landscaping to do in the meantime, so this is a temporary solution. Has anyone experienced any negative issues with planting citrus trees in fabric containers? Thank you.

No negative issues that I am aware of with using fabric containers. Just use a good planting soil and order some of this excellent complete organic fertilizer to mix into your container soil. Replenish when you transplant into the wine barrels.
Thank you very much. Will do!
