Answer: Hi Alex,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Water, nutrients and weather are the 3 major elements affect citrus fruits ripening. We are unable to control weather, but by keeping regular watering and feeding would ensure good citrus harvest. Try feeding every 6-8 weeks with Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food. It’s enriched with Dynamic Lifter and has added nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium to give your fruiting plants the right balance of nutrients for their growing needs.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
