Oh the grief! My once glorious lime, provider of bounteous fruits winter through spring, has defoliated. It was the endless rain that did it. The final straw, 120mm of rain in 5 days. My lime dropped it’s leaves in disgust. So sad.
Here’s my R&M plan
- A layer of lovely homemade compost. Don’t go nuts on feeding when repairing a plant/ tree. Think invalid. Think gently easing into it.
- A dose of EM to rebuild the soil workers and get those networks up and running again.
- A light thin (prune) to take the pressure off.
- A lovely layer of rotten hay to mulch.
