The best time to plant the orange tree is undoubtedly when the sap is dormant, from December to March. The weather is cool and the buds not yet active; the young trees will suffer less from mutilation of the roots than at any other season of the year. Trees may be planted any month in the year under favorable circumstances, and even in the summer months if care is observed in watering, mulching and shading But, from long observation and experiments, we are forced to the opinion that the winter months, when the tree is entirely dormant. Is the right time to plant. Our most experienced orange growers, we think.
