04 Feb Citrus Fertilization
Now’s the time to start thinking about the health of your citrus trees, more specifically fertilization to give them the nutrients they need to stay healthy. Citrus fertilizer should contain nitrogen, micronutrients of iron, zinc, and manganese. You will want to fertilize your trees 3 times a year and a good way to remember when to fertilize is by holidays: Valentine’s Day (February), Memorial Day (May) and Labor Day (September).
