Planting Information

In the ground: If you live in a climate where you can plant you Orlando Tangelo Tree in the ground outdoors, we suggest you plant your newly purchased Orlando Tangelo Tree in a hole that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Orlando Tangelo Tree to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. In Containers: If you live in a northern are where you must plant your Orlando Tangelo Tree in a container and bring it inside to a sunny location we suggest first that you select the right size pot with adequate drainage holes. A 2-3 year old citrus tree typically wants to grow in about a 12” diameter nursery pot. A large terra cotta pot is ideal because it will allow the roots of the citrus tree to dry out between waterings. This is very important for proper growing of citrus trees. Any pot will do however you will need to be sure the pot will drain. We suggest putting a layer of stones or gravel approximately 1 to 1.5 inches thick. This will allow for proper drainage and assure the drainage holes in the pot do not become blocked over time. Use a soil mix that is lightweight and drains well. If the mix contains a large proportion of dense, absorbent material, such as peat moss or worm castings, amend with 1/4-1/3 volume of pine bark. This is a good time to add Bio-tone starter fertilizer to the soil and mix thoroughly. Water in thoroughly, Once the roots have settled, we prefer using slow release fertilizers such as Citrus-Tone by Espoma applied to the soil surface, rather than using plant stakes. This avoids any risk of burning the roots of your Orlando Tangelo Tree.
