Fertilise citrus now, or late May

I fertilised my citrus a couple of days ago, just before the last major rain event. They're showing growth now.

This is probably the last chance to do it. Any of this soft green growth late in summer or early in autumn will get hit hard by citrus leaf miner.

That pest is heartbreaking, and there's no real effective treatment for it. So my advice is to fertilise now, let the growth harden up before the pests arrive.
