September 2014: Planted December 2013. Slow starter but has really kicked along this spring. Well composted and well mulched. Flowers removed to promote growth. 

Novemer 2014: The additional time that this plant has had in the ground has really meant that it has had time to produce superior returns when compared to others that were larger than it.  It has come alive this season with ample new growth and branches.  It is looking fantastic.  Continuing to top up nutrients for it with dynamic lifter.

February 2015: This plant as easily doubled in size since the onset of spring.  Lush new growth.  Always outperforms all other citrus in the garden.  

Have been experimenting with different fertilisers (both organic and otherwise).  Have found that Searles Fruit & Citrus Food works quite well as a base, with Yates Citrus Liquid plant food.  Quite hesitent to purchase liquid fertilser at the start but very happy with the result.  This particular citrus tree has had no pest issues even though others around it have had some minor infestations.  Phenominal grower in the right conditions.

I have tried growing this variety previously with no luck, however I now understand that my efforts were doomed to failure because I was trying to grow them in the wrong location. A different home and an appropriate location should serve the new tree well.

 April 2015. This tree is now going full steam ahead and I am really hopeful that I will see some fruit on it this season. It is now significantly larger with a lot of new growth.

 June 2016 A successful crop of 30 really sweet navels. I feel happy now :) I can't believe how juicy and sweet this crop is compared to shop bought fruit.

Dec 2016 This tree is now 2 metres  tall and has a great crop on it. Really looking forward to harvest time next year.

 A couple of things that I think have contributed to the harvest over the past 2 years: Clearing the ground of grass out to the drip line, mulching heavily, fertilising at the change of each season and regular watering from the first blossom.

May  2017. A crop of over 50. Interestingly the tree has provideed 2 crops, one to ripen earlyJune and one to ripen about a month later as a result of a second flush of blossom

Dec 2017 A similar sized crop to its last one. Wonderful fruit

Comments: - Quite slow growing in the first year, took of the first set of fruit to help it gain some strength, it has now just sprouted a heap of new buds that look like flowers and a few leave so I will hopefully have fruit of it this year.  Easy to care for, growing in a large 70cm pot that I dress with some well rotted manure about 3 times per year.

Growing well in a large pot, especially with monthly or bimonthly applications of chook manure just under the mulch (except in winter).  Has tried to flower, but I've picked these off so energy can go into growing in the first couple of years. 

UPDATE 2014: Produces about 4 small fruit per year. Not a very happy chappy.

UPDATE 2015: Has been in the ground for a few years, but not productive at all, although it seems reasonably healthy.

GardenOfColumba's Edible Fruits
Update: 2137 days 14hrs

Comments: - Easily recognizable fruit, partly motivated to put this in for whoever buys my house when I eventually sell. And it should look beautiful in fruit. Think I'll let the fruit stay on now it has been in the ground for a year. Prolific and beautifully scented flowers.

Qty: 1

Water Given in: Winter

Pollination: No

Pest Control: The old bush lemon behind it had suffered from gall wasp, leaf curl, leaf miners etc etc. and have had to take it out to prevent my healthy citrus getting infected. The orange and all my other citrus are healthy so far.

I've noticed that the branches of my Dwarf Washington Navel has a different formation to the Seedless Valencias. This is interesting because they have a graceful habit it seems. This disturbed me at first but then I remembered how lovely my mother's established Washington Navel looks (20yrs) It has the nicest sweet juicy oranges. It is watered with a slow running hose for an hour each week. This has been her favorite and most successful prize tree - the best she had when she was here in SA. 

Washington Navel is a heavy producer and the Oranges have a superb taste! If however you live in an area with extended weather that is freezing, you may be better going with a summer variety like Valencia Seedless avalable in dwarf variety. You don't want to lose your whole crop if weather conditions are unsuitable (minus Oc) They need about six months above 14c most of the time I found out. I'm about to place some excerpts of Info about Washington Navels on my hobby-site (re About Me) that is really nice and the best YouTube ever, I've found on their interesting history. You'd be amazed. I loved it!

Planted December 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.

Planted several years ago - hasn't done particularly well. (I've never had any fruit off it.) The mandarin and kaffir lime planted at the same time have done much better with equal levels of neglect.
