Four Winds gets an A+. The trees came quickly by UPS, were well packaged and are very, very healthy! One even had (until I… oops…knocked it off) a huge orange on it! These folks know what they’re doing. And get this… the trees came bare-root! They were packed in sawdust! How often do we see bare-root citrus, right? Also, all six trees were ingeniously packaged in 2 boxes no bigger than about 6″ x a foot x 4 ft. total (boxes were taped together).
I probably could have saved a few bucks by buying from a local retail nursery selling dwarf citrus, but I had a feeling I’d have to hunt around for some of my 6 varieties.
Ideally, you want to plant citrus in spring so they’ll have longer to establish before a potentially frosty winter… but I don’t mind keeping an eye on them this winter. I want to pick fruit!!! Grow, trees, grow!
