Q&As/Citrus/Caring for Lemon Trees

Question

My Meyer lemon tree has lost most of it leaves, but has plenty of flowers. Last week I put compost around the top. What else should I add to give it a big boost?

Answer

Don’t apply any extra fertiliser to your lemon tree during the winter months as there will be no plant uptake of nutrients and this can lead to excess soluble salts which can cause defoliation. Also check that your young lemon does not become too wet in the early winter months or too dry over summer as both conditions can lead to leaf fall.
