Planted in a raised bed and pruned as a standard the older leaves often look a little dull, I've piled poo around it and added specialised fertiliser ... but it just seems a bit lack-luster. Hopefully it will soon obtain the zest for life. It is flowering - but doesn't seem to put on loads of lush new growth.

Approximately 2 months after the poo episode and some extra loving ... this plant is covered in flowers and new growth. I think WA soil (even improved) just does not have the nutrients many plants require and additional compost etc is requried

This plant suffered in summer with only a small amount of watering. I've sinced discovered that WA citrus need approximately 6 litres of water per day per square metre of canopy and the orange has responded very well to an almost 7-fold increase in water! It is still very prone to disease and struggles after a few hot days, but it is going to make it.

In June 2011 I transplanted this tree into better soil. So far the transplant has gone well with no apparent stress.

It hasn't flowered that much in the summer of 2012 - lot of green leaves. Come autumn I think I'll re-improve the soil (pig poo?) I've mulched with sweet straw.

Ili's Edible Fruits
Update: 2350 days 2hrs

Comments: - Although not the best orange for Melbourne, it is warmer where we are close to the bay so hope it will do ok.  Selected the valencia due to it's longer fruiting period and due to fruits ability to hang on the tree for several months when ripe.  I have also read it is more disease resistant than other oranges.

Fruiting Months January, February, March, April, September, October, November, December

Question:

Is anyone growing valencias in Melbourne? Any comments on sweet or sour and how they are doing?

I have heard they do o and best to pick them about April as they get sweeter the longer they stay on the tree.

Bought and planted out in Novemeber 2009 but hasn't had a single new leave since and i'm not exactly sure why. Gets plenty of sun and water, and even though it's in a clay soil the drainage seems ok.

I bought this 2 years ago from a nursery and planted it in my front yard which is west facing with lots of sun.  I have clay soil and I dug a very deep and wide hole.  The I used a bag of dirt for roses mixed with cow manure.  Initially it did very well but 2years down the track, it seems to be struggling.  I have watered in seasol and sprinkled with citrus feed, to no availe.  Any suggestions?

Not too keen on this tree. Fruit is still sour. The good thing is that it does not mind Canberra winters. I covered it during the first years but for the last 2 years it has been totally unprotected.
