    I am thinking that I need to try and create a warm microclimate for my citrus trees here in southern Tas. Has anyone here had any experience and success (or failure, too, I guess) in doing this? There are some links on google about it but I’d love to hear from any of you who have actually tried doing something.

    Think shelter from strong winds will be important, didn’t think I would be able to grow citrus here on the New England tablelands but blow me over there are some very healthy and productive trees around this area. So bit the bullet and bought a few and planted them.

    Ah, shelter. Right. We thought of putting a clear plastic cylinder around the trees to start off with. How did you go with the ones you planted? Or have you only planted them recently?

    I recommend reading a bit about Sepp Holzer’s methods.. He grows citrus in an alpine region.

    OK, great. I’ll do that. Thankyou.
