Care of cit­rus plants in win­ter

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening Week -

■ If you haven’t yet moved your cit­rus plants indoors, pre­pare them by plac­ing them in a shady spot for a cou­ple of weeks.

■ Trim off any ram­pant ‘wa­ter shoots’ that are spoil­ing the plant’s over­all shape.

■ Switch their sum­mer feed to a win­ter one – you can buy slowre­lease drip feed­ers that you in­sert into the com­post.

■ Don’t let their com­post com­pletely dry out – keep it slightly moist and in­crease watering when growth starts next spring.
