Westland Citrus Compost
Free draining, nutrient balanced compost for healthy citrus plants Citrus fruit trees make delightful plants for the home and conservatory. They are evergreen and continuously produce highly scented flowers and delicious decorative fruits.
How do I use it?
First put on a pair of gloves and rework the compost between your hands so it regains its intended texture. Then you’re all set.
Citrus trees are best potted on in the spring before they start active growth, but they can be potted on at any time in the summer. Cover the base of the pot with crocks to ensure good drainage. Add some Westland Citrus Compost to the bottom of the pot and place the root ball on top of this layer. Fill in around the edges with more Citrus Compost ensuring the top feeder roots are covered with 2cm of fresh compost. Water well and keep in the shade for a few weeks to allow new roots to grow.
Citrus plants prefer slightly acidic conditions so use rainwater whenever possible in hard water areas. Water thoroughly when required, allowing the surface to dry out between watering. Do not allow plant to stand in water.
