Maintaining and Storing My Citrus

Our annual project of storing all the citrus and tropical plants for the winter is underway.

As many of you know, I have quite a large collection of warm-weather plants at my Bedford, New York farm, including citrus trees and a vast array of other tropical specimens. Because I live in a four-season region, during colder months, it’s vital these plants move indoors, where the temperature and humidity levels can be controlled. Fortunately, I am able to keep them in high-grade greenhouses, where they can continue to thrive. This week, my outdoor grounds crew and gardeners moved the citrus plants, repotted any that needed it, top-dressed the containers with a well-draining mix, and fed every single specimen.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
