I tried growing lemons and limes but without success. I have a small bag of citrus compost left over that I would hate to go to waste. Does anyone know if it can be mixed in with regular compost and garden soil?
Hope everyone is keeping safe and well.



Don't see why not Joana. See what some one else says.

A compost designed for citrus should be well drained and slightly acidic--sounds great for camellias. Otherwise, there shouldn't be any problem mixing it with other composts, or used as a top dressing in beds.

Thanks, both of you. It is only a small bag but I didn't want to do the wrong thing!
