Hi Carol,

The best fertiliser to use would be Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food as it contains rich, composted chicken manure fortified with inorganic nutrients. It is a bit late to apply potash as the fruit have already developed. Monitor for fruit fly using a trap and then apply Nature's Way Fuit Fly Control which contains spinosad a naturally occuring soil bacteria. Spray the lower branches and trunk area. Enjoy eating your own home grown fruit.
