SPECIALLY FORMULATED WINTER PLANT FEED Chempak Winter Food for Citrus Trees is a balanced fertiliser containing natural trace elements, which will encourage natural sustained winter activity, including fruit ripening. It will also help to prevent leaf fall and leaf discolouration.
HOW AND WHEN TO USE:
Dissolve 1 level teaspoon of crystals in 2.5 litres of water or 2 teaspoons to 1 gallon. The amount to be given will depend on the age and size of your tree as well as the pot size. The tree should be fed regularly during winter with sufficient to moisten the compost, but not to soak it. Roots will be kept more active with a water temperature of about 20C.
Citrus are essentially outdoor plants that need to be protected from frost in winter, when they should be kept at a temperature of 8-15C (45-60F). If kept at house temperatures the lack of humidity may cause leaf loss. Inspect your tree regularly and treat any pest attack immediately by washing with a soapy sponge.When you change your clocks to British Summer Time, change to Summer Food for Citrus Trees.
