Flowers blossoming too soon ?
« on: March 25, 2023, 09:55:42 AM »
Hi everyone !

I've got a clementine tree in container, and it's has produced quite a lot a flower buds in this early spring (I live in the south of France). However, it seems like all the buds are blossoming even though the flower looks underdeveloped.
The plant hasn't had any major problems, and I'm not overwatering it.
Is it a problem ?  What am I doing wrong ?
Here are some photos
Thanks a lot

Your are likely doing nothing wrong.  Now is the time of year when citrus flower.  Just let the tree handle the flowers, you don't have to do anything.  Normally only 1 to 3 percent oft he flowers on a citrus tree produce fruit that will remain on the tree until maturity.  If every flower on a citrus tree
 produced fruit, the tree would be crushed under its own weight.
