Now is the perfect time to start new citrus or give existing ones a boost to ensure beautiful vitamin rich food for your family. Neville shows you how using Seasol.

Citrus- Powerfeed and Seasol

  • Citrus need lots of fertiliser to sustain growth and good fruiting, so apply PowerFeed every 2-3 weeks from the first new growth in spring.
  • Citrus are shallow-rooted plants so they enjoy a consistent supply of water, particularly when plants are young or when flowers and fruit are developing.
  • (Apply Seasol Super Soil Wetter to ensure that water can penetrate the root zone - See fact sheet)
  • Citrus trees can be susceptible to a range of pest and disease problems like scale, aphids, fruit fly and leaf miner.
  • Keep an eye out for signs of attack like curling or chewed leaves so you that you can get on top of any problems early.
  • Also apply Seasol every 2-3 weeks to increase plants resistance to insect and fungal attack.
  • Seasol also makes plants more able to cope with other stresses like frost, heat and drought.
