I don't think we can grow citrus here in Iowa, not totally sure. I know some people that were going to try but haven't heard any updates about them. I wouldn't mind trying if I knew I had success but winters here are super harsh.
My citrus trees are not growing in the ground. they are all containerized. I really want to buy a kumquat tree right now since I think the ban was lifted but I really dont want to shell out the $80 for it.
I wished I lived in a warmer climate area where the citrus could survive in the ground.
I'm not sure how kumquats started but i do know is that when you have a fairly well established kumquat you can cut the year old branches and put them in rooting powder and then graft them on hardy citrus stocks. Or you can air root them by cutting a small slit on the young kumquat branches and put the rooting powder on it then wrapping it with moss and cellophane. Then you wait till it spouts root then cut it off and plant it in the dirt without grafting it.
