Soil Mixture for Citrus Trees

Anonymous added on February 16, 2012 | Answered

I have an dwarf Valencia orange, Meyer lemon, and Key lime being soon shipped to me. I need to know what is the best soil mixture for these. I live in SC, close to the Savannah, GA. border, making me in Zone 9 (I believe).

The most important thing to remember in regards to soil is good drainage. As long as your soil drains well and is reasonbly healthy, your trees should do fine. To improve drainage and soil health, you can amend the soil with compost or other organic matter.
