Great report Susanne, thank you! I wish they ran these at the weekend I would go to one (not the citrus but some of their others).

This was a very good session, covered which trees perform best in our region, initial planting, feeding, weed suppression, problems and remedies.

Feeding subsequent years and pest prevention.

Some of the Gardeners had brought problem samples that we were all able to learn from, have seen fertiliser insufficiency, mineral difficiencies, mites, scale, miner, fungus, gall wasp and borer attack and been given ways to lessen/remove the pest and improve the trees health.

It flowed freely yet when questions were asked all aspects were elaborated on and then the seminar continued.

Some chemical means of weed control and combating pests were discussed but organic methods were as well.

I'm happy I spent the $22.
