Description

What Is Westland Citrus Potting Mix Enriched with Seramis?

The Westland citrus potting mix provides the perfect environment to produce healthy citrus plants with abundant fruits. This acidic, Loam-based compost encourages root growth and retains nutrients for healthy fruit development. The resealable pouch is rigid, so it stands up on its own and is easy to use, access and store. This specially blended mix offers free drainage with the perfect balance of nutrients for strong citrus plants.


Seramis® provides water management as it absorbs and slowly releases water and dissolved nutrients. It promotes an open, porous soil structure that supports your plant’s root zone. It helps to avoid soil compaction and supports strong root growth. It works to increase airflow and humidity to create a beneficial microclimate.


The slimline, resealable pouch is designed to stand upright so it is easy to find on shelves or any cupboard or where space is tight.


Why Do I Need Westland Citrus Potting Mix?

If you want to grow strong, healthy citrus plants, you need to provide the right kind of citrus soil or potting mix. Citrus plants like a more acidic soil, which is what you get with this ready-made citrus specific potting mix.


Citrus are not hardy in Britain, they are best grown in pots outdoors in summer then brought back inside for winter. The UK environment best suits growing lemons and kumquats are the most cold tolerant. Fragrant flowers can appear all year round, but are especially abundant in late winter, which can bring some welcome colour and aroma to any indoor space. The fruits ripen up in around 12 months later, so citruses often flower and fruit at the same time.


Garden tip:


  • It is a good idea to repot citrus plants annually, in March or replace the top 5 cm (2") of old potting media with fresh compost.



How Do I Repot Citrus Plants?

The following procedure helps you to pot and re-pot your citrus plants:


  • Choose a pot larger than the old one, ensuring it has adequate drainage holes.
  • Cover the base of the pot with crocks to ensure good drainage.
  • Place a layer of potting mix in the bottom of the new pot then carefully remove the plant from the existing pot.
  • Holding your plant upright in the middle of the pot, carefully fill backfill with potting mix around the rootball until the top feeder roots are covered with 2 cm fresh potting mix.
  • Water well and keep in light shade for a few weeks to allow roots to grow.

How Do I Feed and Water Citrus Plants?

Feeding Citrus Plants

Citrus plants are hungry and require regular feeding during the growing season. Westland Citrus Potting Mix will supply your plants with all the nutrients they need for the first 6-8 weeks. Feeding regularly between March and October with a specialist citrus feed will promote active growth and fruit production.


Watering Citrus Plants

It is best to use rainwater to water your citrus plants. Thoroughly water when required. Do not allow the plant to stand in water. Spraying the plants daily with water will keep them cool and encourage pollination of flowers.
