Hi! First let me say Im new here as of today! This site looks really cool.

I have a large citrus tree I grew from a seed and it's actually going to be 14 years old in January! I want to repot it before it comes in for the winter because the dirt is really old and dry and gross and has lots of bugs that end up coming in with it!

I was thinking of putting it out of the pot and knocking off alot of the old soil and replacing it with new potting soil. Does this sound like a bad idea? I might trim the roots too.

Personally I usually take the risky approach and hope for the best! This tree is pretty tough. It's about 6' tall with a 2" diameter trunk.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

Thanks,
-Karen

Hi Karen,

Welcome to The Gardener's Forum. My 15 y.o. dwarf citrus trees are grown outdoors in containers. For info on citrus grown as houseplant, please check this link:
