Citrus advice please

Hi All
I have enjoyed the citrus topic. Can anyone suggest a good potting mix for my Kumquats? I have a bag of citurs organic fertilizer that I used last year and my Meiwa gave me loads of fruit. I will repot that one and my 2 new ones as well as an improve meyer lemon.

Also, the rats chewed off the green on the branches of an own root meyer lemon that I got last summer. I have allowed it to stay in its pot and it still is pliable. Is there any hope for it?

Thank you

RE: Citrus advice please

Hi - can't speak to the kumquat, as I've never grown ... but I've had a potted Meyer Lemon for many years and it has been through he**! Moved 4 times in back of trucks, dumped over several times from wind, fallen 3' off the patio and snowed on - twice. It's an Energizer Bunny for me. It'd probably be in better shape if it hadn't been so abused, but last year produced 15 nice lemons, which is all this gal needs.

Never had a rat-chewed one, LOL, but I'd say give it some nice organic fertilizer, keep moist and pray to the Citrus Gods for good health. :)

Thanks robyn I laughed at your post but it gives me hope! I did notice a tiny green bit at the base of this plant. Organic citrus fertilizer here it comes!
