This little citrus tree was given to me by one of my nurseries to "test drive" through the winter. I planted it up with some 'Citrus' Violas and placed it at one of my client's homes in a sunny, exposed area. *fingers crossed* Let's hope it truly is hardy to Zone 6 (we're in Zone 7B here in Georgia). We'll continue to feed it some of @Authentic Haven Natural Brew through the winter.

Loquat and other citrus trees: use an organic insecticidal soap or neem oil to manage pests, especially if moved indoors for winter. Water about 1/2 gallon per week, depending upon the time of year and exposure of your containers. Pruning three times a year (April, June, September) will increase branch structure, boost fruit production, and create a nice looking tree.

If there is a possibility that a citrus tree will be transplanted into the landscape or into a larger container - don't choose a pot like this one, which has a narrow opening. Your may need to smash the pot first in order to get the plant out.
