WHAT’S A DRIP LINE?
Posted on December 6, 2013

Drip line PicThe drip line is the imaginary line drawn down from the outside branches of your citrus tree to the soil.
At this point the plants root system is most active and busy seeking water and nourishment.
Watering is most useful and taken up quickly in this area, irrigation lines out and around this point will create very effective and efficient watering.
Importantly with Citrus, keeping the area from the drip line back to the tree trunk, clear of any under growth is vital for creating healthy, happy and fruit bursting trees. Grass, weeds, or other plants should be kept out of this area. Reserved only for mulch, compost and soft leaf litter.
