Now is the time to start thinking about fertilizing your citrus trees! You should fertilize your citrus trees 3 times a year. A simple trick to remember to fertilize is to follow these holidays: Valentine’s Day (February), Memorial Day (May) and Labor Day (September).
The timing of fertilization is important as you should not fertilize citrus trees while they are blooming. Fertilizing when your tree is blossoming could burn the blossoms and cause less fruit to be produced. Be sure to follow the directions for application noted on the fertilizer bag.
