Citrus Success?
« on: November 19, 2020, 03:32:21 PM »








I donít often get to see my citrus trees without a screen over them (to protect from HLB) but last night I repotted a Ponkan and a Sugar Belle and was so happy to see how healthy the trees and root system look that I wanted to take a picture to share and give a big thank you again to this forum, especially Millet, for making this possible. I donít want to count my chickens before they hatch, as I havenít gotten any fruit yet, but it seems at least that you can successfully grow citrus in Florida with protection.

Very impressive! I would say thatís much more work than I have to do.

Yup  It sure is.  My advantage is I can go inside with total safety because temperature are predictable.  Every time you go inside there is a risk that the invisibly small ACP will get in with you.
