The Q&A Archives: Fertilize Dwarf Mock Orange

Question: When and how often should a Dwarf Mock Orange (Pittosporum Tobira) be fertilized? And what is 'the best' type of fertilizer for this plant? Thank you.

Answer: If growth or color is poor, you can feed once in the spring with a timed-release all-purpose fertilizer such as a 10-10-10. Mock orange is a slow grower and will become leggy if over-fertilized so don't feed too much or too often. Best wishes with your garden!
