Tangerine tree

Zone Clermont Florida | Tangerine added on April 6, 2016 | Answered

I planted a tangerine tree about 2 weeks ago. Soon after planting, it started to droop. I water it every day. Can you tell me what is wrong or what I should be doing to it?

If you live in 7 or above you can plant a Tangerine plant in the ground.
Zones below 7, you will need to plant your citrus in a pot so that it can be moved indoors during colder months.

It is very important to water a newly planted tree. The soil should be moist but not soggy. Is the water draining? The roots must not sit in soggy soil.
Make sure you are watering deeply enough to reach all the roots.
Did you plant the tree at the same depth as it was in the previous pot?
Tamp the soil around the planting hole to make sure you do not have any air pockets around the roots.
2 to 3 inches of hardwood mulch around the planting area can help with moisture retention.
