Hi Everyone...Its been a long time since i have been on here and its the start of summer down here in New Zealand...I Thought i would give everyone an update of my citrus in pots and my citrus in the ground..
The biggest revolution for me has been the introduction of the above...A guy sells it here on trade me...Its basically magnesium fillings...You apply every two months around the drip line of ground/pots....
All i can say is my tress have gone nuts..heaps of flowers and vigorous growth...both in pots and ground..
I really pruned my meyer lemon hard...just before spring break...fed it with the above and a general fert and it went nuts! At first my neighbour thought i was going to kill it but its huge now...not many flowers mind but my mandarin produced heaps of flowers and the fruits are already the size of walnuts....If you can get some your way...I recommend it...Improves fruit quality..with smoother fruits and vigorous growth...Found Terracotta to be the best to grow pot specimens with medium size pummice mixed into the potting mix...slow release fert N19 P 3.75 K 11.95 plus trace elements...No urea and half slow release N,half quick release N...Bloody perfect...Every two months add the Mg and they are loving it.Even fed the tomotoes and feijoas with it...The F produced tonnes of flowers.Strengthens the trees.
