Q.Potting mix

Zone Perth | Anonymous added on September 12, 2017 | Answered


A couple of years ago I bought some citrus trees. In particular a lemon (Meyer), orange (Valencia), and a mandarin (Honey Murcott). The trees need to be re potted into larger pots. Although there are potting mixes on the market for citrus trees I would like to make my own mix. Could you please provide a recipe of a mix I could make containing all the ingredients necessary for healthy plants?

Thanking you in advance.

Best Regards

Citrus are not particularly picky about their soil, however, you will be able to reap the benefits of the tree sooner, and in a lot more quantity when you give it what it prefers.
