Shelf life of citrus fertiliser

I have recently planted some Citrus tress. Whilst cleaning out my shed I have found a packet of Citrus fertilised granuales ehich is around 10 Years old. The fertilised is still dry. Would this fertiliser still be OK to use on my trees or should I purchase some new stuff. If ols fertliser no good, what is the best way to dispose of it, without causing evvoierment problems.

Answer: Hi John,
If the fertiliser has been kept in a protected shed and is quite dry and not lumpy it should be fine to use if the directions are still clear. If you would like to dispose of the fertiliser most councils organise a chemical/fertiliser drop off day when old chemicals can be disposed of correctly.
