Mulch around citrus trees Tomatilo

I have used sugar cane mulch previously but now have access to some garden mixed mulch - is this OK to use around the citrus. How to control lady bugs on my tomatilo plants.

Hi Carol,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Garden mix mulch would be suitable for the citrus tree. Just need to make sure to keep the mulch away from the trunk and under 5cm in depth. 

As for ladybugs, unfortunately, we don't have any product to control them, best to try hand removal. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
