My name is Lauren and I’m addicted to seedlings.

I stopped by Lowe's today looking for refills for my mini greenhouse and they had baby fruit trees and vines for $5! Normally I could resist but they had some lonely, neglected citrus seedlings/saplings and I had to buy some. I got a Washington Navel orange and a Mexican lime to go with our unkown lemon tree. We live in zone 7 so they're outside right now but will have to come in during the winter or I would've bought a pair of each. Any tips for keeping them healthy and growing quickly? They're about 6" tall and they have little stakes to help them grow straight for right now and I mixed a little feritilzer in with the soil, anything else that I'm missing? EDIT: How long will it take for them to grow fruit? I know it'll be a while but I'm hoping its closer to five year than ten.
