Spring work with indoor citrus plants: transplanting, pruning, feeding

spring work with indoor citrus fruits Like gardeners, at the beginning of spring there are enough worries for flower growers, especially those who have a citrus collection. Spring work with indoor citrus fruits is especially important, because at this time they are actively waking up from hibernation. Although the dormant period in such crops is not pronounced, it is in the spring that the growth of young shoots begins. Our task is to help the plants so that they can not only develop the crown, but also lay flower buds..

Spring care for citrus fruits in general consists of the same activities, be it tangerines, lemons or grapefruits.

In order for all of them to develop well and bear fruit at home, the following procedures should be followed:

  • top dressing;
  • pruning;
  • transfer.

Spring work with indoor citrus fruits: how to feed the plants

Most adult citrus fruits bloom in the spring. At this time, it is especially important to provide them with adequate nutrition. First, the bushes were not fed in winter. Secondly, due to the limited volume of the pot, they quickly “eat up” the dose received. The introduced nutrients are enough for two months. If not fed regularly, the plants will starve. This will affect both appearance and fruiting..

Fertilizers with a high nitrogen content should be used to subrust citrus plants in spring. The best option is organic matter (infusion of any manure) and mineral preparations (urea-based solution).

Fertilize citrus fruits every 10 days, alternating organic matter and minerals. Simultaneous application is not allowed.

This scheme is used before flowering begins. When citrus fruits begin to lay the ovary, it is necessary to switch to potassium-phosphorus fertilizers. It will be possible to reconnect nitrogenous fertilizing after the citrus fruits have formed..

When to trim citrus fruits

It is best to start pruning in the month of March, when the plants start to grow. Young seedlings are formed by cutting out excess shoots to stimulate the growth of lateral branches. Too old lemons and other crops can be rejuvenated in the spring. And the trees formed earlier should be cut minimally, simply by removing dry shoots and those that grow inside the crown.

Citrus transplant

Another obligatory procedure from the complex of spring works with indoor citrus fruits is a transplant. Young specimens growing in small flowerpots are transplanted annually. For plants over 3 years old, as well as fruiting citrus fruits, it will be enough to renew the topsoil. Up to 6 years old, trees can be replanted every 2 years, and then – as needed.

It is not difficult to prepare a nutritious soil mixture yourself by mixing:

  • humus;
  • humus;
  • leafy ground;
  • bone meal;
  • ash;
  • slightly prolonged mineral fertilizer (complex).
