      Help With Citrus Trees


      I am seeking any help regarding a couple of citrus trees. The large tree is a semi-dwarf Meyer (improved) Lemon tree......it is a least 12 years old. The second much-smaller tree is some sort of kumquat. We live in San Diego County (City of Lemon Grove).

      Both trees appear to be having a hard time. The lemon tree has lost most of its leaves on the west (sun-facing) side. Some of the remaining leaves are yellow. Fruit production and new growth is very low this past year (it had been a great tree for a number of years, yielding lots of lemons in the past). We water regularly and apply fertilizer about 3-4 times a year.

      The kumquat tree is only about 2 feet tall -- it was just planted this past spring. It had a bunch of fruit on it when it went into the ground, but it lost all that fruit after the first couple of months. I am now noticing a few small branches which seem to have died-off, and are reminding me of the lemon tree.

      I don't know know what is going on. To be honest, I probably only succeed in getting about one out of three trees I plant to make it, but usually once they survive a year, they are good for a while. I would especially like to keep that Meyer Lemon tree, as we have had it now for a while. Any help with these trees would be appreciated.

      Women years fruiting plants will not fruit. I’m hoping that it’s is nothing serious like virus or infection. Have you taken soil sample to see if you see anything irregular?
