Q.What To Do With Potted Citrus Trees For Winter?

Zone Norfolk county, simcoe, ontario, n3y4k5 | Anonymous added on May 27, 2021 | Answered

Do they need to be watered? Kept at a certain temperature etc. Never had citrus trees before and am loving the idea of having them in pots( potential of moving in a couple years) they will be outside for summer and brought in when it gets cold.

I don't know what varieties of citrus you're planning on, but these articles should generally apply to any kinds of potted citrus: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/citrus/tip-on-water-requirements-for-citrus-trees.htm
https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/lime/potted-lime-trees.htm. Generally speaking, you don't want to water the tree when it's inside and dormant any more than necessary - don't let the soil dry out completely, but don't overwater and be sure the soil drains well.
