How to take care of Citrus Kumquat
Citrus trees – during spring and summer fertilize regularly with an organic fertilizer. Plants with fruit should be kept in a light place in the living room for the winter. Plants without fruit should be kept in a light but cool place (10°-20°C) to promote budding.
This plant is cold resistant, but not frost resistant. If the temperature drops below 0°, and your plant is outside, protect it from frost with bubble-wrap or sacking. You could also place it in a frost-free shed.
Each spring the shrub ought to be transplanted to a larger pot, use an Azalea or heather type potting compost. In general plants can stay outside between May and November
