Growing & Caring for Trees : How to Fertilize Citrus Trees


Hi, I’m Jessica Smith with Brown’s Nursery
in West Shorting, Utah, and today we’re talking all about trees and shrubs. Right now we’re
going to discuss how you fertilize a citrus tree. Well, citrus tree likes a good fertilizer
that, you’re, you’re most common in your commercial fertilizers are, are your nitrogen, your phosphate,
and your pottasum, or pot ash is what it usually says on the label. These are your standard
fertilizers for everything, but a citrus tree as likes it’s micro-nutrients, which are like
your magnesium, your zinc, your borohon, your coppers, and sometimes your iron. Get yourself
a good citrus fertilizer that’s actually formulated with maybe a little bit higher phosphate level
in it. OK, your nitrogen, and your phosphate, and your potassium levels are always listed,
that’s those three numbers. Nitrogen is what’s going to give it the fast green growth, your
phosphate level is what builds your root system and produces your flowers, which in turns
builds, produces your fruit, and then your phos, or your pot ash level, or potassium
level. This right here also aids in root development, but also kind of is like a antibiodic for
the plant itself. It helps repair damage, or helps fight off any disease or insect damage.
