Valencia orange stunted growth with flushes of tiny leaves that doesn't mature

I tried giving citrus fertiliser, iron chelate, zinc foliage spray but nothing seems to help the tree to grow. It has barely put out any new growths for the past 2 years. What is wrong with it?

Hi Sandy, 

Thank you for contacting Yates.

This could due to pot bounded roots. You may try to trim off any girdling roots and repot in fresh potting mix or plant the tree out in the ground. I suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive. 

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
