MANDARIN CULTURAL NOTES
CONDITIONS: Select a warm sunny site with free draining fertile soil. Protect from frosts.
FOR BEST RESULTS: Best in fertile, light sandy or loam soils. Use a good organic compost in a thick mulch layer, kept clear of the trunk. Feed with complete slow release fertiliser or citrus food late Winter/early Spring and late Summer. Water regularly by slow deep soaking over warmer months. Avoid cultivating around surface roots. Clip fruit from tree rather than pulling them off.
PRUNING: Prune to thin crowded stems after fruiting and allow more light into the centre of the tree. Trim soft water or rootstock shoots.
