Hey, I'm looking to buy dwarf fruit tree grafts (citrus prefered) to grow indoor in containers. I found an online seller, but I'd rather support a local business. Does anyone know where I can find plants like this in Long island, NY? I live in nassau county, specifically. Thanks!

I don't know about NY, but it's actually citrus season here in the SF Bay Area. In my neighborhood, every other yard has some form of citrus ripe on the trees/shrubs right now from lemons to oranges, and everything in-between. People complain about the traffic, but I feel blessed :-)

I have never personally grown any citrus plants, but you might want to find out if they need to be pollinated or cross-pollinated. You can still do that indoors, but you will need to know that, so you can pollinate them yourself, if that's necessary.

Sounds fun. Enjoy!

I cannot imagine how many greenhouses, nurseries there must be on Long Island !
Dwarf citrus in pots can be done indoors. One winter I had 8 types growing and producing fruit under lights. Yes, self pollinating is important. Gene
