The Q&A Archives: lemon tree losing its leaves and yellow

Question: just returned from trip and lemon tree is losing its leaves and they are yellow. What should I do??

Answer: Sudden leaf loss on citrus trees is almost always due to droughty conditions. I'd water the tree to help it recover - water deeply to rehydrate the roots. In a few weeks you can feed your tree with a Citrus Food to help it green up. Best wishes with your lemon tree!
