Why are the leaves of my lemon tree yellowing

We have a young lemon tree and lime tree planted next to each other. The lime is green and healthy and is currently flowering. However the lemon tree has yellowing leaves that are curling. Husband has been spraying with white oil, but yellowing and curling is spreading.

Hi Merilyn,

Thank you for contacting Yates regarding your lemon tree, the picture has shown a severe Iron deficiency, the product you need to apply is Yates Iron Chelate. I would recommend applying through foliage spray, check your soil and make sure it's the right pH for all the trace elements intake. Hope this helps and happy gardening. Best Regards, Louise Yates Horticulturalist
