Commonly Asked Questions

How do I look after my Cumquat Espalier?

Espaliered fruit will continue to grow beyond the current lattice. You can snip off the existing lattice to attach a larger lattice or an additional one. Espaliered fruit grows well along guide wires also. Plants can also be pruned back to smaller sizes to suit compact gardens.

 

How do I get my Cumquat Espalier to produce delicious fruit?

A well-hydrated plant will produce juicy fruit. The location of the Espalier is especially important, as citrus will prefer a full sun location. Look into disease prevention to ensure your plant is healthy, and use a fertiliser specially designed for citrus. Good draining is also a must; a layer of mulch will also help keep the moisture in the soil.

 

When do Cumquats produce fruit?

It can take a couple of years for cumquats to produce fruit; be patient and look after your plant’s health, and you will be rewarded. Cumquats will produce fruit in winter or early Spring. Some cumquats will produce fruit every second year.
