Lemon tree leaves wilting

    3 responses

Underobservation starts with ...
Hey I'm new, my little lemonade tree (for the kiddos) is growing but the new growth is curling and has some brown spots, any recommendations to remedy? I water it 3 times a week, plenty of drainage holes and good soil and is on the sun 6+ hours a day from 11am

Hi. The leaves are damaged by the leaf miner which is a small grub tunneling through the leaves.

Hello,
I have a bunch of Kassia Lime and Pomelo seedlings with the exact same condition as you have.
The cause is a pest called citrus leaf miner. Not really sure of a remedy, however it would be easy to find on the internet.
Happy Gardening,
Robert Mandla

From around Christmas time when they emerge, spray the summer/autumn flush with an oil spray. Be careful not to burn the young leaves in the process--half strength may be adequate.
This really only needs to be done on young non-bearing trees. On mature trees it is unsightly, but inconsequential to tree health and cropping.
