Hello
Lumps & Bumps On Stems can be a bigger issue.
If your tree is lacking in vigour, despite being well fed and cared for, take a closer look at the branches.
Are there any enlarged growths along the stems? If so, you have citrus gall wasp (Bruchophagus fellis). There is no chemical control for them, but you can help by pruning the affected branches and binning them.
After pruning, always remember to give your citrus a good feed with a complete fertiliser likes Yates Thrive Natural Citrus & Fruit Organic Based Pelletised Plant Food.
