Hi,
We have a lemon tree that has a lot of mint planted around it, could you please tell me if they make good companions.
Also it has lost a lot of its leaves but has quite a few lemons growing at present. Possible cause ? – its 4-5 years old.
Thanks, Lyn.

Hi Lyn,

Good companion plants for lemon are thyme, marigold, borage, yarrow and dill.

Mint is useful for attracting insect pollinators but be careful to not let it take over, It can be quite vigorous. This may be helpful to you for getting some more fruit production.

Try using a citrus fertiliser instead of a nitrogen-rich fertiliser when feeding your citrus. This will help boost flower and fruit production rather than putting all the nutrients into the leaves.

Thank you
