Q.

DORMANT PHASE?

Zone 15017 | Anonymous added on April 19, 2018 | Answered

My lemon tree lost all leaves this winter. Is it normal for a tree like this to be dormant for a period of time? The branches are not dead, just no leaves. If yes, how do I care for my plant during this phase. Thank you Barb
