Fruitscaping™ with Orange Trees

Welcome to the world of Fruitscaping™ with our Orange Trees. These classic citrus trees are renowned for their luscious fruit and fragrant blossoms, infusing any garden with a touch of tropical charm.

Orange trees are not only productive but also aesthetically pleasing with their deep green, glossy foliage and vibrant fruit that provides a striking contrast. Their intoxicating citrus scent fills the air when in bloom, creating a truly aromatic garden experience.

These sun-loving trees prefer well-draining soil and regular watering. Citrus trees, including oranges, thrive in warmer climates but can also be successfully grown in containers for those living in colder regions. This allows for the flexibility to move them indoors during harsh winter months.

Incorporating orange trees into your Fruitscaping™ plan adds an element of color and vivacity to your garden. They pair wonderfully with other citrus varieties, like lemon and lime trees, as well as subtropical plants like avocados or figs.

Experience the joy of Fruitscaping™ with Orange Trees. From planting and caring for your trees to harvesting and enjoying your homegrown oranges, each step is a fulfilling part of your horticultural journey. With our Orange Trees, you can savor the fruits of your labor in the most delicious way possible.

Shipping Restrictions

Unfortunately, We Cannot Process Orders to California, Hawaii, Alaska, or Internationally:  Please note that due to specific agricultural regulations, we’re unable to ship any plants to the states of California, Hawaii, and Alaska, or outside the United States.

Shipping Information

Before Your Plants Arrive: You can find many guides on unpacking, planting, & care, on our growing guides page.

The Journey From Our Nursery to Your Door:  We NEVER ship our plants bare root. Your plant will travel in the very container in which it was nurtured. We thoroughly prune and water them before packing, and make sure they’re well wrapped to retain moisture during transit. It’s as though you’ve personally collected them from our nursery!

Choose Your Ship Date: We understand you’ll want to be available when your plant arrives. Our checkout process features a handy calendar that allows you to choose the Monday on which you want your plant to ship. Depending on your location, you’ll likely receive your plant by Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday of that week. Once shipped, UPS will generate a tracking number and send it to the email you provided. You can then follow your plant’s journey and ensure someone is available to unpack it on arrival day.
