Recommendation for Citrus, Avacado, Mango Organic Fertilizer
« on: September 18, 2017, 10:37:42 AM »
Hello,

I have Orange, Lemon, Lime, Avacado and Mango trees. Found online some fertilizer which works for all of them (i.e.SUNNILAND CITRUS, MANGO AND AVOCADO FERTILIZER). Wondering if anyone has any feedback for it or other suggestion for organic fertilizer for my trees?

Avacado and Mango trees are 2-3 ft tall and just planted this year. Citrus trees are full grown trees.

TIA

The thing I learned (indirectly) from Gene Lester, who is the Northern CA citrus expert is to use Rhododendron / Azalea fertilizer -- never use "Citrus" or "Avocado" fertilizer.  Soils in our region tend to need the acidifying effect of Rhododendron / Azalea fertilizer.  Coffee grounds in massive quantities are also a good option.  So I use either for all subtropicals and tropicals I grow.  No idea if it's ideal for Mangos, but around here Mangos grow so slowly I never try to push them with heavy fertilizer.
