I finally discovered that my ph meter is kaput. I'm hoping this will assist big time with a lot of "fail to produce" problems. The other thing that this little adventure has taught me is that it's probably better to build a few small beds rather than one big one. This allows you to adjust your soil in each bed individually. If you want a long bed, just butt a few up against each other.
Let me explain. I work hard to pour organics into my beds. I think that means they are rich in nitrogen and alkaline. Citrus like an acidic soil - let's say 6. My bed is around 7.6. Probably even too high for the fig which likes 7.0.
Sulphur is about to become my best friend!
Grow long and may your fruit and vege prosper.
