Lemon tree

    1 responses

Carolbris starts with ...
I have just dug a hole in my backyard to plant my new lemon tree, but it seems there is heaps of what looks like coal mixed with soil! Should I still plant the tree there?? I had just been to get soil and organic fertilizer at the nursery, now I am unsure. Pls help...

I would be worried that it might make the pH more alkaline which is not good for citrus. The reason being that ash is alkeline. If you have a pH test kit use it, if not go and get one they are under 20 bucks from garden centres. You will have to give your tree hand sprayed (onto the leaves) iorn chelates if you intenend to plant it into alkaline soil as they can't uptake iron unless they have a acid pH. Hope this helps you decide.
