Hi Al. I live in Las Vegas, NV. I have two grapefruit trees in containers. I fertilize them weakly, weekly. I am watering every couple of days because of our temperatures. Today it will be 90. They are in the gritty mix so the water moves fast. I read a lot about citrus but I still worry about over watering and I get so many different opionions on how much to water. During the growing season, do you suggest keeping them evenly moist or letting them dry out between waterings? I have been letting them dry out but I am getting some brown edges on some of the leaves so is that a sign of not enough water? I am using Dyna Gro Foliage Pro. Since my environment is dry and I water often, should I give them the Foliage Pro only once a week or more often? I would love to hear your thoughts about how to take good care of my trees in my environment. They seem to really love the heat and the sun. THANK YOU!!
