What I learned Friday

Citrus, like the Mr. Mac satsuma shown here, don't like wet feet.

Any suckers that sprout below the graft line of citrus should be removed.

If you order and plant bare root citrus, plant in the dormant season, straighten the roots out, cover with soil and then water well to remove air pockets.

I also learned how to graft citrus, though I don't think I'll be trying that. This is one plant I'm happy to buy already grafted - or mature.
