Has anyone ever used Jobes Citrus & Fruit Fertilizer? If so, how is it?

The only "Jobes" I know are the fertilizer spikes....they are terrible at best....

Perhaps there's another product to which you refer?


RE: Citrus Fertilizer

I agree with Josh! "If" its the fertilizer spikes, I wouldn't use them on my tree. Someone posted using that on her Lychee tree(defoliated the tree) and almost killed it. There's better ones out there, unless there's another form of Jobes fertilizer I'm not aware of?

There's a granular form, available in various bag sizes starting at 4-lb. I've used it (my Meyers are in-ground, not in pots) and it's fine. A little liquid iron helps any citrus, BTW. Like roses, citrus are born hungry and stay that way.

RE: Citrus Fertilizer

Is there a link to a product?
I'd like to read the NPK ratio and determine if the minor nutrients are included.
