Feasterville, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/07/2019 -- Leck's Greenhouses, the top flower nursery in Feasterville, knows that the chilly and inclement weather that accompanies the winter season can wreak havoc on many trees and plants, including lemon and lime trees. This is especially true if they aren't properly cared for and prepared for the cold and sometimes frigid conditions. Now, Leck's Greenhouses is offering tips on how to safeguard these trees and allow them to survive the winter.

While citrus trees are tough and durable, they can be susceptible to damage from frost and other cold weather conditions. For winterizing outdoor trees, it's best to remove any fruit on the tree and that may have fallen on the ground. Pruning the tree should be the next step, ensuring to remove dead dying or diseased branches. Additionally, the tree trunk can be wrapped using several layers of cardboard to keep it insulated until the final frost.

For indoor citrus trees, a different approach must be taken. Not only should the tree be placed in a sunny spot, but it may be necessary to supplement that natural sunlight with an indoor grow light for best results.

Since indoor moisture levels are typically arid in the winter, it's crucial to increase the humidity around the citrus tree. One good way to accomplish this is to mist the tree with a spray bottle an hour before the lights are turned on. When watering a citrus tree, keep in mind that they prefer warm water and keep them away from any heat vents, as this will cause them to dry out.
