Longer days, warmer days, and good fertilization along with sweet rain on well drained soil all combined to help create a bounty of citrus blossoms. The scent will fill the garden along with the wisteria in the coming days. Most of the blossoms will drop from these dwarf varieties because they are so young; but I’ll enjoy the blossoms for now.
Locally, one of the last citrus tasting events will be held tomorrow at White Forest Nursery. It’s pretty nice way to sample a variety of citrus to help determine what works best. A representative from Four Winds Growers is there to provide samples to taste, growing advice, and stock to buy. It’s a pretty great deal to help get started in growing citrus.
