My dad has some satsuma trees. He is wondering how to fertilize them and should he put any lime on them? He lives in south Georgia. thanks!

I am not quite sure about satsumas - but in general Citrus trees are surface feeders that require well-drained soil, but also plenty of moisture to fill the fruits and keep foliage in good condition, especially during summer. THey will do best in moderately heavy loam soil that contains a good mixture of decayed manure and sand AND generally Citrus trees can be fertilized during the growing period.
Hope this helps Wink

I've had a look for you on the net and Palm Tree's advice seems to be spot on. Sorry I can't help you myself but we can't grow satsumas outside here in Scotland. Sad

Hit it right on the dot.. use heavy loam soil and fertilize.
