The Q&A Archives: Citrus Trees

Question: What should I use and when should I fertilize my lemon and lime trees? Thank you.

Answer: As a general rule of thumb, bearing trees should be fertilized 3 times per year with an 8-8-8 (or similar) fertilizer. The recommended applications can be made in January - February, May - June and October - November, although timing is not especially critical. Use a specially formulated Citrus Tree Fertilizer in the amounts as recommended on the label. Good luck with your citrus trees!
