Q.Winter care for 4 year old 0RANGE TREE

Zone CT9 3YF Cliftonville. Margate.Kent | Anonymous added on August 22, 2018 | Answered

The orange tree was bought 3-4 years ago as a potted plant. It did not `do` much for the first year so we decided to put it in the ground. Since then it has grown and thrived and last year we had 3 oranges ..the majority fell off when very small. This year we have over 30 oranges, some very small, some about the size of tomatoes and 2-3 more like the size of a tangerine. They are all green and we presume that if they survive the winter ,when uncovered next spring, they will increase their size and develop their orange colour.
We cannot track down a protective bag big enough (the foliage is approx. 4ft x3ft ) would to`bandage` with floss be enough protection?
