Flush now
« on: May 10, 2019, 03:27:59 PM »
Second flush taking place now. First flush was Feb. Second is usually August. 3rd in Oct. Only reason I can see for early 2nd flush is an abundance of rain and warmer temps. Any other ideas?

Could easily be because of the weather, however, most citrus normally have 3 flushes per year.  I have on several occasions had trees with 5 flushes per year by heating the soil with an electric heating cable, and lighting during the short days of winter.
