What To Do When Citrus Loose Their Leaves

poorly limeOh 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.

Fingers crossed.
