Q.Dwarf Citrus Trees

Zone Coronado, CA 92118 | Anonymous added on April 24, 2019 | Answered

What size pot or container should I buy for my dwarf citrus trees? The trees are young and only 3 feet tall but I don’t want to repot them. They are currently in smaller nursery pots and very healthy. I live in an apartment with a balcony. I also need these pots/planters to have saucers.

These can usually survive in an 8 gallon container for many many years before needed any root pruning, or a bigger container. They make them in squares as well, so that they fit more neatly into places. You can get saucers for underneath them as well. Black and white are common, but I prefer white, as they do not absorb as much heat during the summer months.
