I've struggled with this but then found out the soil was holding too much water.  It was dug up and the soil area raised about a foot, then pruned the tree back.  Since then it's sprouted a lot of new growth, but it has set it back.

The Washington Navel is one of the most widely known (and grown) citrus. It is a navel orange, meaning that it has a small "navel" (actually a tiny secondary fruit) and crops mostly over winter in our climate. The Washington Navel variety is so-named because it was distributed through the US by the Washington office of the Department of Agriculture. It has a rich, "classic" orange taste and is generally seedless due to the tree's inability to produce viable pollen.

This tree is part of our citrus hedge - a row of citrus trees planted along a north-west facing boundary fence at 1m spacing. The plan is for the trees to grow into an effective hedge that will be kept pruned to about 2m high. We prepared the planting area for the citrus hedge by incorporating "fruit & veg" soil mix into our existing sandy soil. Mushroom compost was worked into the bottom of the planting hole which was then backfilled with more "fruit and veg" mix. The area was lightly mulched with mushroom compost, leaving the area about 8cm around the trunk clear.

Growing nicely along. Notice some flowering
NickL1 says... [2523 days 10hrs ago]
Was doing better than the Late Lane but ooks rather pitiful on 20 Nov 2012. Most of the leaves are yellow of have dropped off
NickL1 says... [2419 days 11hrs ago]
Very happy with it. Applied Seasol every two weeks during the summer months and it seems to generate new growth and leaves. Applied blood and bones on dripping line on 1.3.13.
NickL1 says... [2150 days 10hrs ago]
Doing better than the Late Lane. No fruit this year but hopefully in summer of 2014.
NickL1 says... [1836 days 8hrs ago]
Correction, had one fruit in August 14. Was very happy altho the fruit was decidely small compared with those from the supermarket. Nevertheless it was sweet. Like the Late Lane, I am hoping for more fruits altho the tree is small, no more than three feet.
NickL1 says... [1479 days 6hrs ago]
After a slow start this tree is truly established. Havent grown much taller but have more branches and leaves. Also started flowering. Hope to eat the first fruit from this tree this year. Have consistently fertilised during winter and spring.

Slow growing, drops fruit regularly, fruit that is left gets scarred??  All this rain we have had has really helped this little fella.  Is flowering again as well.  Got two fruit in 2009/10

September 2010 has put on a fair amount of growth in a year and is now full of flowers. Going to fertilise now.

Got two fully ripened oranges which were delicious.  For some reason most of the fruit fall off soon after developing.

My orange tree is only one year old and I have only had one orange from it but the taste was beautiful. I dont know if its my imagination or not but home grown fruit and vegetables taste soooooooooooo much better. I am hoping for a few more oranges this year. I have two kumquats in pots doing well and I make spoon sweets (Greek), marmalade and liqueure from them. When my son was about four he used to love popping a kumquat into his little sisters mouths and watching their faces.  I also have a fig tree, also one year old, and I had about six yummy figs. Also good for jam and desserts or just to eat fresh.

Bought 15 years ago and only put in soil 7 years ago. Wonderful fruiting, bumper crop each year, no diseases or pests - including gall wasp - remarkable as it sits next to a lemonade lemon which gets quite badly affected. Very occassionally fed, when I remember. Wonderful shape with no pruning. Fruit is much sought after by neighbours who like sweet, juicy, no spray fruit.
