I'm on my third lemon tree in the same spot and it's not looking good. I can only assume its something in the

soil. I have prepped it well each time with al the appropriate nutrients, but since its a new building site I'm wondering it the soil's been poisoned during construction ???? any clues about what to do ??

Thank you for contacting Yates.

I would suggest to check the soil pH to start with. The soil in new construction site could get affected by cement and concrete which result in high alkaline soil and unsuitable for citrus growth. 

To help lower your soil pH (making it more acidic), try 'Yates Soil Acidifier Liquid Sulfur'. It helps creates ideal growing conditions for acid-loving plants.  It's an easy-to-use liquid formulation, it can be diluted and applied without the dust and the mess associated with traditional granular products.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
