Our little mandarin tree. Has fruited once (3 mandarins) but is now unwell. Have put some leaf curl medicine on her and given her some extra attention. Hope she sparks up soon.

If u have a man about the place get him to pee on it. A liquid feed is good immediate boost then add something more slow release like a dedicated citrus feed or chicken manure pellets

Ive given it some citrus feed and will also go with the pee idea - thankyou! :) - so she's just lacking nutrients? No diseases?

#TroforteM is a great fertiliser that has shown great results. It actually feeds the soil with bacteria. There are several varieties of the fertiliser for different areas of garden needs. I'm sure I have posted i formation on it, just check hashtag. Keep grass well away from base of citrus trees as it is competition for any fertiliser applied to citrus trees. @kasccr

All good advice above. Citrus are gross feeders and require lots of fertiliser in a regular schedule. Remove the grass from base of tree at least 1m back from base of tree. Then mulch well. #citrus #mandarin #citrus-advice
