Citrus trees are a hearty hedge that can be grown from cuttings, grafting or a seed. Growing from cuttings ensures faster fruit production than growing from seeds. For the best results, obtain cuttings from a local tree.
Select fresh cuttings that are at least 1/8 inch in diameter and have some pliable wood present.
Store the cuttings in water until ready to use to ensure they do not dry out.
Cut an angled tip onto one side of the cutting and dip the cutting into root hormone.
Plant the cutting angled tip side down into a pot and keep it moist. Once the roots have outgrown the pot, transplant them to a desired location.
