Max starts with ...
I have a "lots a lemons" tree in a pot and is going well with lots of flowers in its first year. Should I debud these flowers to let the tree develop for next year?

Hello Max
I wouldn't, the tree will do it's own thing and set as many fruit as it will carry, enjoy them.

Beautiful looking tree there Max. If it's part ornamental, I'd consider spraying with some ag oil, like Pest oil or eco-oil to keep the citrus leaf miner away. They make the new growth look knarled and twisted and ugly.

Have a look at the back of the leaves. Are there wobbly lines? If so it is leaf miner.
At this time of the year in Adelaide though lots of citrus get a bit of a curl because of the cold we have had. As it is warming up new leaves will not be curled if it is this.
Squish as many catapillars as you can. There are special catapillar sprays you can get, but if it is in a pot just squishing them might be the easiest way.
