If you want to use less or zero toxins in your fertilizers, then don't rely on the terms "organic" or "certified organic". These labels usually mean something different than the purveyor would have you believe.

Farming is an un-natural made-made discipline. If you want to do something natural, then participate in habitat restoration. If you live in the southwestern U.S., then these folks have lots of non-subjective information to get you started: Tree Of Life.

Sbl, you are correct that mulching is a poor choice for citrus in your climate and soil. In my less-humid environment here, it is a necessity but of course soil drainage is also needed.

Your tree sounds like it is in stress, there are many other variables other than food i would suggest checking out first. Water and drainage off the top of my head can make citrus finicky. Lets start there.

Now this is where people like ...

Moderator: OrganicBananac, I don't think that insulting any member here is the right course of action. Therefore I deleted the second part of the post and kept only the advice you see above.
Also, please note that we are here to exchange the knowledge, not trying to point out what others presumably don't know and harass them.

Please, read the rules once again and this time more carefully - here. Especially #1 and #3.
