Kumquat tree advice needed

Hillela G.


I have a kumquat tree that is three feet tall and two years old.
It has not grown and the leaves are yellow with green veins.
i have fertilized it but that has not helped.
i have thought about digging it up and maybe giving it a new start somewhere else.

    If you are wondering how to get blooms on a kumquat tree, make sure the tree is planted in full sun, has rich, good draining soil and is pruned properly. Give your kumquat tree a good quality, organic citrus fertilizer with zinc in it on a monthly basis. You can also spray the leaves with a micronutrient combination of zinc, iron and manganese in late spring at the beginning of the growing season. Good luck with your kumquat tree. The flowers are lovely and the fruit is really a treat!
