My daughter planted a few orange seeds when she was in Grade two. Although it bears no fruit it has grown into a lovely, healthy tree.This winter we do not have access to a greenhouse and would like advice as to where to keep it during the cold months.Your help is most appreciated!!
Sincerely,
Marnie

Hello Marnie,If you don't have a greenhouse, it would be best to move the tree indoors. If you can, keep the tree in a garage or basement for a few days before bringing it into the house proper so it doesn't suffer from the temperature change. Alternatively, if you have a sunroom or enclosed (heated) porch, you could also keep it there for the winter.Hope this helps!JenniferWeb promotions editor
