Make sure to provide adequate space for your tree when it reaches its full size.







Plant tree in full sun exposure for best results.

  • Dig a hole twice as wide and the same depth as the root ball.
  • Remove 1/3 of the soil and replace it with compost, peat moss or a good planting mix.
  • Mix 1 cup of Espoma Citrus-tone into the amended soil.
  • Make a small cone of soil in the center of the hole and place the tree so that the roots are fanned out around the cone. 
  • Back-fill with the fortified soil until the roots are covered by several inches and tamp gently.
  • After settling, the soil level next to the trunk should be at or below the level the tree grew in the nursery field or container.
  • Water thoroughly after planting and check soil moisture often to ensure that the tree has adequate moisture.
  • After trees have made 6-8 inches of new growth begin regular feeding schedule.

Established Plants: 

  • Apply evenly around outer edge tree branches and mix into the soil.
  • Plant food should not be applied within 6″ of the trunk.
  • Water thoroughly after each application.
