Medium_image Dwarf mandarin tree not flowering.

Hi - we have a dwarf emperor mandarin tree which was planted in a pot a couple of months ago. A lemon and lime bought and planted at the same time are doing very well, but the mandarin doesn't seem to be happy. There are no signs of flowering and the leaves don't look healthy. I've attached a couple of pictures. We've fed it a few times with Yates Thrive citrus & fruit natural fish & seaweed, but it doesn't seem to be helping. I just found a caterpillar who has been having a munch on the leaves & have removed him. Thanks!

Answer: Hi Claire,

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding the Mandarin tree, the yellowing leaves indicates lack of nutrients, the product you have got is great, however, continually feeding once every 7-14 days would be ideal. The symptoms for trace elements deficiency is not obvious yet, however, you may apply Yates Health Tonic, Trace Element Chelates, which including most trance elements citrus will need. You can see a picture of the product using the below link.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
