Pollination and Propagation
Step One:Soil and Planting: Plant in soil that drains well. Dig a hole that is as deep as the tree's roots and at least twice as wide.
Step Two:Place the tree in the hole and backfill around the plant's roots with a mixture of the native soil and high-quality planting mix that has washed sand and organic fertilizer.
Step Three:Create a basin around the roots drip zone so that water collects. Water deeply until the roots and nearby soil is saturated and reaches field capacity. http://ucanr.edu/sites/VCMG/Planting_and_Care_of_Young_Citrus_Trees/?sharing=yes

Heat Stress - Abiotic Plant ProblemDuring the Summer heat waves, even citrus tree A lack of water can cause citrus trees to become heat stressed when growing under the intense full sun all day in hot dry climates. During a heatwave increase irrigation frequency and if possible spray down the tree with water to cool the plant leaves. Signs of heat stress include brown, yellow, and dry foliage caused by the breakdown of chlorophyll from high temperatures on leaf surface due to the closure of their stomates.
