Our mature lemon tree produces a lot of fruit but all of it is very thick skinned and very dry with virtually no juice inside. We fertilise the tree twice every year and wonder what else we can do to produce a more useful fruit

Answer: Hi Kim,

Thick rind is an indication there is currently an imbalance of nutrients the plant is receiving – usually it has sufficient nitrogen, but not enough potassium. To help rectify this, I recommend applying Yates Liquid Potash to your plants now and again in autumn. Feed in early spring with a complete fertiliser like Yates Dynamic Lifter. Good luck! Regards, Tammy.
