Dwarf citrus adapts well to containers, providing you supply plenty of water during the growing season. The minimum diameter of a container should be 1 1/2 feet, with an equal depth. You can go smaller if you keep the branches pruned, but you'll get fewer fruit, so it's a trade-off. Most garden centers and nurseries have 10-gallon planting pots at reasonable prices.
