Lovely oranges every year for past 3 years.
August 2009: Some flower activity. Pruned the tree.
September 2009: More flowers recorded. Applied sulphate of potash and watered in. Introduced fly trap.
October 2009: Looking healthy and produced lots of flowers.
November 2009: Tiny fruits are starting to appear.
December 2009 to February 2010: Lots of fruit but still green.
March 2010: New buds appear despite the green fruit still on the tree. Is the weather tricking it to re-flower. I wonder?
November 2011: Sprinkled potassium sulphate and four scoops of Osmocote.
May 2012: Pruned heavily leaving some branches and leaves.
October 2012: Looks very pretty with lots of new growth. Have selectively removed undesired new shoots. Lots of fragrant flowers and tiny fruits.
