dwarf lemon and lime fruit trees - Knowledgebase Question

Santa Margarita, Ca
Question by queeniebob

I got good advise in Feb. and put sand on top of the soil to get rid of the mites, but the leaves have not grown back. I have put them outdoors now that the nites are not freezing, how long do I wait to see if they sprout leaves? PS the soil has been moist under the sand. Should I also leave the sand in place?
Thanks

I'd leave the sand in place. It will keep future generations of fungus gnats from living in the soil. Citrus trees leaf out when the weather is warm so give yours a few more weeks to respond to the outdoor temperatures. I think they will recover. Have my fingers crossed for you!
