This is the second time I've tried to grow a Washington dwarf orange tree. I am really, really discouraged
Few years ago, bought tree at neighborhood nursery (So. Calif coastal).
It had 3 delicious oranges on it. After that, it hardly bloomed next season, produced nothing, then had to be taken out.
Bought another at same nursery. First year, a few blooms, 0 oranges.
Second year (2005) plant went CRAZY with fragrant blooms. You should have SEEN those blossoms!
What happened? Blooms dropped off, plant began to fail.
I gave it citrus feed, not in excess, and even some iron, though the leaves have more of a mottled green-and-yellow look, rather than characteristic chlorosis pattern.
If anybody has a clue, I sure would like to save plant and make it produce, even if I have to wait till next season.
Also, if anyone in this area is experiencing similar problems, please post.
Thanks in advance to all.
