Citrus trees (especially lemons) are kind of ordinary and common, and mostly just seem to look after themselves—and yet they also spark more interest and questions than any other fruit tree type. Should you prune them? When? What should you feed them with? Can you grow them organically? How do you manage citrus gall wasp? Do they need pollinising? How much water do they require? And so on…
This citrus masterclass is presented by experienced organic orchardist, Humphrey Howie, from iconic Fat Goose Fruits orchard in South Australia. We were lucky enough to get Humphrey to present at length and answer our questions on all things citrus, from rootstocks and site selection through to planting, pruning, feeding, choosing the right varieties and plenty more. Settle in and prepare to learn everything you ever wanted to know about growing organic citrus, plus more.
