How to use Citrus Fertiliser:
Plant your citrus tree in a warm sunny protected area in free draining soil. Do not plant any deeper in the ground than it was in the bag it came in. Compost mixed into the soil in the bottom of the hole will give a good head start.
Spread 1 cup of Citrus Fertiliser (approx. 200g) per square metre around tree, work in lightly taking care not to come in contact with the bark. Water well after planting.
Apply Citrus Fertiliser as a top dressing in September and February, scattering 1 cup (200g) per square metre, work lightly into soil and water well.
Care: Wear gloves and avoid contact with skin, eyes or inhalation. Wash hands after use.
Store: Tightly sealed bag in cool, dry area.
