Saturday, May 18th at 10 am – “Growing Citrus in Central Texas” with Neil Schmidt.
Grapefruits, Kumquats, Mandarins, Oranges, Lemons and Limes OH MY! Cultures around the world have used many types of citrus in a wide variety of ways from food to medicine to insect repellant. The fruit is unlike anything else and the flowers have an amazingly strong-sweet scent. Citrus grow quickly and do very well in our heat! Central Texas is also cold enough in the winter that almost all citrus will need to be protected. But luckily there are many varieties that can be grown effectively in pots which can be more easily moved and protected.There are even a few varieties that can be grown in the ground. You can be successful growing citrus too!
Neil Schmidt is the Education Coordinator and Information Specialist for the Natural Gardener as well as one of the staff horticulturist at the information desk. His passion for all things biology and citrus in particular is infectious!
