I have a number of citrus in pots. They were looking sick after spending the
winter indoors under lights. I have been trying to bring them back to health
around the yard with various amounts of direct sun. The place they seem to
like the best is on the north side of the house in the shade. Lots of growth
and good color. That doesn't make sense. I wonder if they would like some
epsom salts also.
