Meyers Lemon Tree
« on: November 08, 2021, 02:46:07 PM »
Any recommendations as to how to help this tree? I fertilize with slow release. I believe this tree is trying to overproduce, I am constantly pinching off buds. Definitely does not have the nice deep green that my lime and orange tree have. Any help is appreciated!

thanks!

Looks way under-fertilized, I would give it 2-4x the amount of soil fertilizer you are currently giving it, and also apply a foliar spray of diluted liquid fertilizer to give it a fast-acting application.

and besides that fact, keep in mind that not all of the leaves will restore to green, once a leaf hits yellow there's a certain time window until it reaches a point of no return.
So once you fertilize as previously mentioned, you should see a portion of leaves change color and some not, but all the new growth should have a better color, if not, you're still not giving enough or the wrong fertilizer.
