Another Kumquat issue
It looks like kumquats are popular on the citrus forum! Thats great, I love eating kumquats and wish my tree was healthier. The story is... I bought a nice tree from a greenhouse and it even had a couple of fruits on it. That was a couple years ago. When I got it home I repotted it to a larger pot and detangled some of the roots. When I repotted I added a bunch of rabbit poo for fertilizer. I know that citrus are nitrogen hogs so I thought this would be good. Over the last 2 years the tree has gone from 2-3 ft tall down to 1 ft tall. It keeps having branches turn brown and die. I'm lucky I still have the real quat above the graft but its getting close to the graft union and any more dead branches and I could only be left with a rootstock.
I'm kinda thinking about feeding the quat with some chicken poo for a nitrogen boost or possibly giving it an iron supplement. Any thoughts from the more experienced citrus growers out there?
