Nagami Kumquat, barely any fruit
I have a Nagami Kumquat tree, I transplanted it into around a 15 gallon pot or so and it's growing OK i think. The tree isn't super young, the trunk is about the diameter a circle you make with your thumb and first finger.
This summer, there were tons of flowers, it flowered twice, with well over 100 flowers each time. But now, there are only about 10-12 actual fruit on it. I noticed too that in the summer, some of the branches died, they turned brown and were brittle. I cut those off.
Talked to a guy at the nursery today and he said I didn't fertilize it enough (I think i only did it twice with some of those Jobe's citrus fruit spikes. I just crushed a little and sprinkled it on top and then watered it).
I've seen smaller kumquat trees at the store with 50+ fruits on it.
Can anyone tell me what's wrong? Thanks a lot.
