I inherited some lemon trees from my mil, two are doing fine, but one is dying and I’m not sure why. They are all in the same area, a south facing solarium with and have always done well. The leaves are dry and curling, but the the soil is wet.
No, same pot, same spot in the room. Nothing has changed. I think we may have over watered it when we first took over, as the leaves went yellow at first, but now the tree is drying out as are the two lemons on it but the dirt is as moist as can be. I’m nervous to water it because it doesn’t seem to dry out, and it can be watered from the bottom.
Before all my citrus froze to death I used a top quality potting mix and top quality compost mixed together @ 2/3 potting soil and 1/3 compost and it worked extremely well. Citrus doesn't mind being a little root bound but it will reach a point where repotting is mandatory. Also, citrus doesn't like to be over fed. It does need a good organic fertilizer about twice a year though.Silly question, but as my name implies I seriously have no idea what I’m doing, do I need any special growing medium?
