Mandarins are hardy and easy to grow.  As with most fruit trees they prefer a sheltered area but will tolerate an exposed windy site.  Plant in full sun for maximum fruit production. They will fruit in a partially shaded area, but not as much as in full sun.

Citrus prefer fertile, free draining soils that are well-mulched, though will grow in other soil types such as sandy soils and even heavy clay. It’s best to plant them in mounded soil to ensure adequate drainage, as they don’t tolerate waterlogging of the roots. Citrus trees are hungry feeders with high requirements for trace elements. A regular spray with a seaweed foliar fertiliser will supply trace elements. Fertilise citrus trees in spring and autumn with worm-castings and compost.
