When to use

Watering: In hard water areas use rainwater whenever possible to maintain the slightly acid conditions of the compost. Allow the surface to dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly but do not allow to stand in water.

Feeding: Citrus trees actively grow all year round. In summer they produce new leaves and flowers and in Winter the fruits ripen. As a result of this activity they need to be fed during the growing season - stop feeding completely during the winter. From March to September feed every two weeks with a balanced feed such as Miracle-Gro® All Purpose Soluble Plant Food for bushy growth and to prevent fruit drop and leaf yellowing.

Temperature: During winter keep the plants in a cool, but frost-free place such as a cool conservatory; greenhouse or unheated room. Aim for a minimum temperature of 10°C.

Cautions

Use in a well ventilated place and avoid breathing in dust.

Always wear gloves when gardening. Wash hands after use.

Store in a cool place, away from sun.

Open bag carefully and reseal after use. Keep the bag closed when in storage to prevent drying out.

Storage from one year to another may affect performance.

Occasionally a white mould appears on the compost. This is not harmful to your plants and should disappear naturally.
