Questions and answers

Q:
Hi there, why is this not suitable for potted citrus?
A:
The advice from Tui themselves is that this recommendation is “best practice”. Essentially fertilisers are salts and can potentially burn plant roots when over-applied. This Tui Citrus Food is a blend of straight fertilisers with no control mechanism. This means the nutrients are released all at once and are taken up by the plant, with the excess being washed out of the soil through leaching. When a fertiliser is applied to the soil, the soil acts as a buffer and the fertiliser disperses out into the soil. In pots and containers, when too much fertiliser is applied the concentration of fertiliser (essentially salts) hits the pot wall and the high concentration can cause roots to burn. This looks a lot like overwatering.
