Dwarf Lemon - Eureka (Grafted) 10/10

This is my latest citrus tree I am excited about....really healthy and a good formation. It was grown by Pocket Pockets but is worth mentioning. I am going to feed my citrus with SOILCHARGE by Alternative Gardening Solutions. I was strongly advised by Bunnings to use a Premium Citrus Potting Mix....they cost the earth and have questionable wetting agents in them plus 'Osmocote' - I used to like before I did Natural Health Research 20 Yrs. If you wish to know more, go to my hobby site in About Me. I have researched SoilCharge and happy with my discovery - I won't need what Bunnings recommended. I like to go Organic and you do need to be careful that there are plenty of Trace Elements. For me, SoilCharge satisfies that demand.

I found an interesting tree tree on the Net called Lemon Heaven recently that fruits in clusters. Only thing was, it's exclusive to PlantNet sold only in Queensland .....NSW and WA in 2016 so SA and VIC have to wait due to some quarantine laws (state to state). Makes me value my Eureka and Meyer all the more!

Planted in November 2015.  Too young to review.

It's currently in full sun. I water almost daily depending on weather. I planted in a 75 litre planter bag with a BIG bottom layer of course grade pine bark then kind of equal amounts of good quality potty mix, coir peat, perlite and a shovel of organic pellets mixed through. A really good layer of small pine bark on top.
