Should I Mulch Citrus Trees?

Mulching Citrus is generally not recommended because it may cause rotting. If you must use mulch, use it at least a foot away from the trunk. Gravel can be used to store and reflect heat, HELPING the ripening process and warming the air during frosts. Again, keep gravel away from the trunk.
