Special needs to help yuzu tree bloom?
Hi all - long-time lurker, first-time poster. =)
Early this spring, I picked up two 2-3 year old citrus trees from Four Winds, a Meyer Lemon and a Yuzu, to brighten up my greenhouse. I sort of OD'd on the advice and suggestions on these forums, but it seems to have paid off. Both trees are thriving in terms of leaf health and new growth, as are the rest of the plants in my GH, including an older Kaffir Lime that these joined.
The Meyer has bloomed twice already, and has several nicely-maturing fruits on it. The Yuzu has added probably 50% to its size when I received it, but not a single bud or blossom has appeared, despite conditions and a diet identical to the Meyer & lime.
I'm willing to accept that perhaps I'm just being impatient here with new trees, but since Yuzu is a bit of an exotic citrus (particularly in Ohio!), I've not been able to find much reference as to whether it has special needs to thrive.
If anyone has experience with Yuzu and might be willing to share some tips, I'd appreciate it, particularly with winter coming on. While it should be well-protected and nicely warm all season, I don't want it to decline because there's something vital to the species that I'm starving it of during the cold dark winter...
Thanks in advance!
