Do your citrus leaves have black spots? Does the fruit have black spots? Do you have too many fruit or not any fruits? Did you know that fertilizer requirements for citrus are based on the age of the tree? Did you know that you should not mulch a citrus tree? Learn how to properly care for your citrus so you can reap a healthy and tasty harvest from your trees. Also, what about alternatives to citrus? There are many other fruits you can grow in our zone that are not citrus. Jim Davis, UF/IFAS Extension, Sumter County Residential Horticulture Agent will be our speaker.
