|We have a 3 year old citrus (lemon?) which looks healthy-nice full leaves, and this Winter was very rainy. Almost precisely half of it is yellow. The leaves look good, same size as the green, just yellow. Cause? Cure?
Thanks, Cathy, for previous help!
|Cause? Probably too much water. When the soil stays too wet it excludes oxygen which can suffocate the roots. Too much water can also leach out any nutrients in the soil. While you can't control the rain you can help your citrus along with a dose of Ironite and some Citrus Food (in amouns as recommended on the package for your trees' size). The yellowing leaves will fall off soon but healthy new leaves will develop and your tree will recover in time. Just be patient with it.|
