Medium_image Hi, Have a lemon tree in a pot. New growth leaves are turning yellow, and leaves don't look as glossy.

What is causing new growth leaves to turn yellow, and old leaves to loose their healthy gloss? Is it over watered? Have recently fertilized using a citrus fertilizer.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I don't want to kill it :(

Answer: Hi Felicia,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your lemon tree. From the picture you have sent through, the yellowing leaves show a distinctive V pattern which indicates Magnesium deficiency. You can apply Yates Magnesium Chelate Liquid to correct the deficiency. I would also suggest checking pH of the soil and making sure it is in a suitable range for citrus.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturalist
