How to Use
CITRUS TREES: For best results and to help prevent the incidence of fruit drop, trees should be evenly fed during the growing season. Apply fertiliser at a rate of 150g per square metre during early Spring, mid Summer and Autumn. Spread evenly to the drip line of the trees. Avoid spreading closer than 10cm to the base of plants. WATER IN WELL, washing off any granules that may have lodged on plant foliage.
Note: Production of sweet fruit is aided by dressing with Richgro Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts) at the rate of 10g to 20g per square metre when fruit is starting to ripen.
APPLES, PEARS, STONE FRUITS: Apply fertiliser at a rate of 50g per square metre when trees first start to form buds (Aug/Sept) and again when fruit is starting to ripen (Dec/Jan). Spread evenly to drip line of the trees.
Avoid spreading closer that 10cm to base of trees.
Do not use on areas where organic livestock are to graze unless fully dug in and incorporated into the soil.
