New Plantings

  • Make sure to provide adequate space for your tree when it reaches its full size.
  • Plant your tree in full sun exposure for best results.
  • Dig a hole twice as wide and the same depth as the root ball.
  • Remove 1/3 of the soil and replace it with compost, peat moss or a good planting mix.
  • Mix 1 cup of Espoma Citrus-tone into the amended soil.
  • Make a small cone of soil in the center of the hole and place the tree so that the roots are fanned out around the cone.
  • Backfill with the fortified soil until the roots are covered by several inches and tamp gently. After settling, the soil level next to the trunk should be at or below the level the tree grew in the nursery field or container.
  • Water thoroughly after planting and check soil moisture often to ensure that the tree has adequate moisture.
  • After trees have made 6-8 inches of new growth begin the feeding schedule below.

Feeding Established Bulbs

Citrus trees should be fed 3 times per year:

  • Late Winter - (January/February) Pre-bloom application will enhance flowering.
  • Late Spring - (May/June) Post-bloom application will encourage better fruit set.
  • Fall - (September/October) this will ensure overall nutrient needs are met.

Application Method & Rates

  • Determine the amount of Espoma Citrus-tone required from the chart below.
  • Sprinkle the plant food evenly around the outer edge of the branches of the tree and mix into the soil.
  • Plant food should not be applied within 6" of the trunk. Water thoroughly after each application.

Potted Plants

  • Use one teaspoon per 4" of pot diameter.
  • Double for pots over 12".

Is Espoma Citrus-Tone Plant Food 5-2-6 good for blueberries?

Espoma Citrus-Tone Plant Food 5-2-6 works well for all citrus, fruit and nut trees. A better option for blueberry bushes/plants and berries (as well as other acid loving plants), would be Holly-Tone. It is best to fertilize at the time of planting or in the spring for established plants before the leaves have grown. Healthy plants should not need to be fed more than once per year. New plants can receive an application in early spring and again in late spring.
