Where to Plant a New Citrus Tree
I have an old citrus tree that I need to take out of my back yard. Can I plant a new one in the same place/area?
Thank you, Wendy
Plant Guides Answer:
I do not think you should plant your new citrus tree in the same spot where the old one died.
There may be something in the soil there that adversely affected the health of the old tree. Even if that is not the case, the old citrus tree has most likely depleted the soil of the minor elements that citrus trees need for healthy growth.
It would be best to plant the new tree where citrus has not recently grown.
