Citrus General Discussion / Is horticultural oil safe for citrus
« on: August 09, 2018, 09:05:26 PM »
Hi everyone,
I have some issues with spider mites on my lemon tree. Is it safe to apply horticultural oil to kill the pests? I am a little bit worried because someone at Home Depot said that it will kill my tree. Outdoor temperature is around 80F and I will put my tree under shade for a couple of days to protect it from sunburn. The brand is Green Earth.
If itís not safe, I could use another product called End All. Which product is more effective against mites? I donít have access to neem oil because I live in Canada.

Thank you

Hi everyone,
I have a shiranui grafted on cleopatra. Is it a good combination? I read somewhere that trees grafted on this particular rootstock will slowly decline after ten years. Is it true?

Hi everyone,
some leaves on my meyer lemon have develop some yellow patches on the. What do you think could be the reason?
Here are some background:
- I live in montreal canada where we had a very wet and cold summer this year.
- I only water my tree when the top is drying and give some fertilizer once a week (dynagro foliage 9-3-6).
- It had been outdoor all summer and Have been indoor this week because the temperature is going down to 40F.
Where are some pictures

I have inspected the tree and didn t see any bugs. By precaution, I spray my tree with a insecticide soap.
Thank you for your hep

Hi all,
I read Millet's wonderful review on the Valentine review and I am very tempted to acquire one. Woul it be possible to fruit this variery considering that I live on the east coast of Canada and don't have a greenhouse? It will be in a container and bring inside for winter.
Thank you for helping me
