Citrus trees prefer and will thrive in full sun. They will grow well with up to half a day of sun, but will produce more foliage and less flowers and fruit with less direct sunlight. Citrus prefer to be protected from frost, which can damage the foliage and fruit. Good drainage is necessary for all citrus and good soil preparation before planting. Citrus can be planted in raised beds or pots in sunny areas, always select a variety suitable for this type of planting. Smaller varieties of citrus can be grown in large pots or tubs. Citrus are shallow-rooted trees and thus require regular watering especially during the hot summer months. Always avoid planting around the base of the tree. Keep the area under the tree free of grass and mulch well.
