Still struggling with my Meyer lemon and Persian lime.
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:11:17 PM »
I posted about my 2 citrus trees I am struggling with . I was recommended to do a foil ice spray with nitrogen and I did that then I also fertilized with espoma organic fertilizer 3 weeks ago and nothing has changed. Trees still look the same maybe more yellow. Does anyone else have advice ? How long typically after fertilizing to see any results!? Thanks for any response. I am new to this.

Is this tree a container grown tree, or is the tree planted in the ground?

What on earth is 'a foil ice spray with nitrogen'??

I too do not know what a foil ice spray is. You may have burnt this tree. What kind and how much nitrogen did you spray with? With temps in the Houston area as hot as they are one needs to be careful with what he sprays. Oil will hurt a tree at above 80 degrees.
