I’m a firm believer in organic growing methods – especially anything we will eat. Citrus need a balanced fertilizer and since I used potting soil (not our native clay that’s practically void of nitrogen but high enough in potassium and phosphorus not to need these additions), my new project needed more nutrients than those found in blood meal and my suite of organic potions. Finally I broke down and tried the non-organic Miracle Grow stashed in the garage. Holy hand grenades! Suddenly my little tree went crazy with life – flowers everywhere, more green growth. You would walk in the front door and think, what is that wonderful smell? Yum!! Citrus flowers!!
