Dwarf Lemon - Lisbon (Grafted) 5/10

KatTaylor1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2032 days 4hrs

Comments: -

The fruit tastes well and it is small enough to grow in a pot on the patio

Fruiting Months February, March, April

Height 1.5 metres

Growing: In a Pot

Fruit Harvest: 0.5 kilograms per Year

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Autumn and Spring

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Dynamic lifter

When I Fertilise: Spring

Pest Control:

Pest oil or milk for sooty mold

Question:

It is variegated, however a lot of the new growth reverts back to just green. As there isn't a lot of growth, i'm a bit worried that if I kept pruning the green growth off, there wouldn't be much left on the tree - the variegated branches don't seem to grow very vigorously at all :(

Plum - Satsuma (Grafted) 5/10

KatTaylor1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2989 days 7hrs

Height 2 metres

Growing: In the Ground

First Fruited: 2 Years from purchase in pot

Sun/Shade: Medium Sun

Water Given in: Autumn

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Dynamic Lifter

When I Fertilise: Spring

Question:

Last year had set fruit for the first time - only about 7 plums, but all dropped off. Is the small ameount of fruit likely due to age, or lack of a cross-polinator - it is supposed to be a self-polinating plum (I think it is a Satsuma). And would the fruit drop off due to insufficient watering, or is there any other reason?

Finger Lime - Grafted (Grafted) 5/10

KatTaylor1's Edible Fruits
Update: 2989 days 8hrs

Height 0.75 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Water Given in: Autumn

Pollination: Self Pollination

Fertiliser or Organics Used: Dynamic Lifter

When I Fertilise: Spring

Question:

Last year it flowered and set tiny fruit, but all fruit dropped off before it could grow bigger than about 1cm. Is it due to heat, lack of water? Being Australian native, I would have expected a lower watering need than regular citrus and some degree of 'self-sufficiency'...

Question:

It always seems to get rust on the leaves in autumn - i try to collect most of them and dispose of them (in a bin) - would spraying with some organic fungicide be useful or is it a waste of time, since the rust only appears shortly before the leaves fall?
