Can I plant my lime tree 20 feet from my orange tree?
Normally orange trees can grow quite tall and have a very large root system. I wouldn't suggest planting your lime tree that close to your orange tree.
Is it possible to plant the seeds of an orange to make an orange tree?
By Maxine R. from Houston, TX
Absolutely. You will have to wait at least 5 or more years to see fruit. Don't expect the fruit to look or taste anything like the fruit that bore the seed. Tangerine seed are easy to grow, also. The leaves are very scented. It's nice just to walk by a small Tangerine tree.
Can I put lime on my fruit trees, especially my citrus trees, and when do I do it?
By Carol M from Lakes Entrance Victoria
I have been growing a dwarf orange tree indoors for several years. It continues to grow taller and appears to be in good health. The problem is that the branches and the main trunk are the same in diameter. I have to prop it up or the whole plant would be a creeping vine. What can I do to make the tree produce a trunk?

Oranges can fall off of the tree prematurely for a number of reasons, including moisture issues, temperature changes, and fertilizer needs. However, they may just be ripe or just near. This page has some useful information if you are growing oranges.
