I bought a Yen Ben Lemon Tree 3 years ago and it has been doing really well.
Unfortunately after all the rain we have had (it might not have anything to
do with it), the leaves at the top of the tree are curling inwards. Why would
it do that and can I rectify it. I was so proud of how it has grown and would
hate to loose it.

Good Afternoon,

Over the last 6 – 12 months my lemon tree which was a thriving bushy green tree with lots of lemons has become a very sad looking tree. A lot of the branches are brown, have stripped their greenery and there hasn’t been any new growth for a long time. The leaves are yellow

I have used Epsom salts, sheep pellets and seasol with no impact. There was a lots of avids and bugs on the tree 12 months ago and so I gave it a dose of conqueror oil.

I did dig down to the roots and they appeared wet so I pulled back the soil and let it dry out.

Next to the lemon tree is a lime tree and that is large, bushy, green and growing really well. A few branches stripped their greenery but it is growing back

What do you suggest for the lemon tree – will it ever recover? Does it need to be pruned?

Many Thanks,
James

Hi

I acquired two falcate yellowwood trees from Palmer’s Remuera and they are potted in recommended pots from palmers.

They are about 1.3m from the soil line.

I wonder how often I should water them and what else I need to do to care for them.

Thanks

Brett

Hi,

We bought and planted a weeping cherry at the start of spring. It started to blossom (but not full blossom) after three weeks from planting and the blossoms have dried out since then. The leaves appear to be small and tree shows no growth at all (based from the size and number of leaves of each branch). The leaves wilted and the flowers/fruits have dried out. Can we still do something to save this young tree?

Hi there,

We have a big problem with little maggots which are eating and rotting all our spring bulbs (tulips, daffodils) and also parsley. It’s in many different parts of the garden and covers large areas. Help!

We make our own compost and mix it in the soil, maybe this is the “food” they are looking for?

Thank you

My white Daphne which is in a huge container has put on a lot of growth since flowering but has gone a bit floppy and producing yellow leaves. I do give it a lot of water (most days) and I have just given a good feed with liquid fish fertiliser as I wonder if this may be the problem?

Hi,I purchased a white Daphne plant in a pot last year from Palmers Whangarei.it started to lose its leaves and the flower buds turned brown. I repotted it into a larger pot with new potting mix/compost but it continued to worsen and eventually died. I watered it and kept it in a shaded/sunny position. What caused it to die?.
