Looks like some of your plants may have suffered a  transplant shock more than the rest... Other than that, I can't imagine your front yard in a few months. It might become a bit overcrowded once they really start growing... :P Until then, you're enjoying a Citrus paradise only a few of us can afford inground! 8)

Great pics Grad. Now that's a huge difference. Obviously they love your new environment, just like you do... ;D
My mandared is now doing great. It had some diebacks, but it's recovering nicely... A lot of new flushes are coming up, but no flowers.
Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait it out until next year. :P

Same here... my mandared is producing new flushes but no flowers... :( Luckily my valencia late is full of flower buds, and I needed this as my interest in citrus had reached a serious depth...
Your plants seem to be doing great Grad! Too bad the striped meyer hybrid isn't producing any flowers!
...but I could be wrong...

Don't despair, Marc! I believe every grower has his ups and downs.
Besides, you've got plenty of citrus which can always make up for the other, not so in the mood, ones. ;D

I have several, but I'm planning to give up some. In fact I already gave up a couple. I cut down the chinotto and the ruby clementine. I could no longer manage the large size of the clementine. It came back nicely after some serious pruning but grew too fast and wide before it even started flowering again, so I killed it :-[. A couple more will follow but I haven't made up my mind on which ones yet.

How did you manage to kill the chinotto :o its one off the easyest citrus in my opinion and a slow grower,not as vigorous as the clementine

I couldn't get rid of the bugs in the tree. And I didn't like the fruits at all. And I needed room for other more interesting citrus trees! ;D

Indeed, chinotto has extremely short internodes which makes a very compact crown. On the other hand, it also makes foliar application of pesticides (or other means) almost impossible to carry out thoroughly, so Marc think twice before your next order (rangpur lime...::)). j/k :D
