I've noticed that my neighbor's container citrus trees have yellowing leave and don't look very healthy. What can I do to make sure my newly planted container citrus trees stay healthy and are productive?

Yellowing leaves on citrus trees usually indicate overwatering or under-fertilizing. You can avoid these problems with your citrus if you feed every 2-3 weeks with a half strength dilution of water soluable fertilizer (such a Miracle Gro or Peter's) and if you water thoroughly when the top half inch of soil is dry. Enjoy your garden!
