Question & Answer
To what size (Width/Height) does this grow to. Please give a size comparison to a Dwraf variety. From: EASTWOOD NSW
Kensington Pride mango tree are big tree, 5-8m, high & wide, they can grow larger than this in idea conditions. Dwarf trees, Irwin, Sensation, & Palmer grow 3-4 m. high and wide
When you say repot, do I repot it in the same pot with new potting mix as the pot we have is 65cm X 50cm which is quite large. From:
Yes that is correct you can just change the soil you don't need to change pot as well :)
Would this grow in a pot and also how large would it grow to? From:
Yes it will and in a pot I think it is going to stay below 2 meters. Remember to repot every 1-2 years.
is the Nam doc a dwarf variety as that is what we are looking From: ROCKHAMPTON NORTH QLD
The Nam Doc Mai is not a dwarf, it will grow to about 5m. Have a look at the #DwarfMango1530 #DwarfMango2349 or #DwarfMango670 for dwarf selections of mango
Saw on your comments that Irwin mango died after being seasol Would you please comment as I use seasol regularly. From: BIRKDALE QLD
#DwarfMango1530 I think the best comment on the topic of Mangoes and Seasol was this one: "Hi. I have been to a few training sessions with the makers of Seasol and have done some research on seaweed products. Seasol not only stimulates root growth, but flowering and fruiting as well. It contains plant hormones such as auxins and it actually thickens the walls of plant cells thus making pest and disease harder to take hold. Not only that, it stimulates the micro organisms in the soil thus helping organic matter break down. The alginins in seaweed extract also have similar benefits. Seaweed extract is a fantastic product. The Yates brand doesn't even smell that much!"

Just received the above order, does it require tip pruning, doen't look like it? Besides well composted soil do I add anything else to prepared whole in ground? Trish Scurfield From: LANE COVE NORTH NSW
The Irwin dosnt require pruning at this stage. Next spring you can prune back to encourage branching. Just plant in your well composted soil and mulch to keep weed free and it will be a happy Mango tree.
