Nagami Kumquat Tree in Flower

This was a bit unexpected since my Nagami kumquat tree sapling is a bit young, but I enjoy surprises such as this! Those of you who have grown citrus trees have knowIMG_1859n the sweet fragrance of these flowers in your garden. It gives me great pleasure to know that a few months after being transplanted from its container directly into the soil, this petite sapling has taken to its new home and thrived.

The second Nagami kumquat tree sapling I purchased at that time, however, perished. This was very sad news. It had been planted about 10 feet away from this one and given the same citrus tree food and watered at the same time as this one. The store was good to give me a free exchange for another Nagami kumquat tree sapling.

I’ll plant the new sapling in soil next weekend, with hopes that it will find my backyard garden a welcoming place!
