And being the lazies that we are, they stayed in their plastic store pots for over a month. They were doing okay, so we figured we could take our time.
Yet when we came home from Oregon, they were toppled over, all crushed and semi-dead on one side. Time to finally find a home for the poor things.
Since we had a nice open patio due to our ivy removal, some nice wooden barrels would work to both house our plants and fill the void.

I potted the trees by first scoring their roots (loosens them up) and filling them with manure-filled soil.

I still want to put the trees on roller-bases though, so I can move them around the patio if needed. But they are much happier in their pots, and definitely won't fall over easily!
Do you have a citrus tree? Or know how to take care of one?
