what time of year to re-pot

10 years ago


Am in Zone 7B in Nassau County NY.

As I understand, citrus fruit take a long time to ripen and there is a long flowering period often with fruit and blooms on the tree at the same time.

So my Q:
Is there a dormant season? Here in the Northeast, we must be really screwing up the tree's natural life cycle. So how do I figure out when it is best to re-pot?

Also, I keep reading that when we re-pot it should be only to a slightly larger pot. What is the downside of going from a one-gallon pot directly to a ten gallon pot?
