CAR­ING FOR CIT­RUS

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - HOME -

MOST cit­rus trees will be look­ing a lit­tle yel­low at the mo­ment, in most cases this is due to the cold tem­per­a­tures. Mulching the tree with a good dose of com­post will help to in­su­late the root zone and pro­vide a good sup­ply of nu­tri­ents. It is a good time to clear the stem by prun­ing off any young branches that have grown near the base of the tree. This will al­low good air circulation which will help pre­vent in­fes­ta­tion of pest in­sects such as scale.
