Repotting Citrus in My Planters from QVC

Cold weather preparations are underway in my greenhouses.

Now that it’s autumn, everyone at the farm is busy preparing the greenhouses for all the tropical plants that will be stored indoors for the winter. Most of them are kept in one of three hoop houses designated specifically for warm weather specimens such as my collection of dwarf citrus trees. They are all thriving - in fact, I don’t remember the last time I actually bought a lemon. Some of them outgrew their their pots, and needed to be removed, trimmed, and repotted into slightly larger containers. Fortunately, I now have my own selection of durable and decorative planters available on QVC - and they’re just perfect for these beautiful and prolific growers. Repotting is a tedious process, but a very important one that keeps all my plants healthy.

Here are some photos and some handy tips - enjoy.
