Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • kumquat seeds or seedlings
  • compost
  • organic manure
  • organic fertilizer
  • mulch
  • cow manure
  • pelleted chicken fertilizers
  • artificial citrus specific fertilizers.

Find a location with well drained soil that gets a lot of sunlight. Prepare you soil with a nice rich compost before planting your tree. Avoid over-watering after they have become established as this may lead to the root rot. Don’t forget to mulch as this will help reduce evaporation and weeds.
