Q.Leaf curl on lemon tree

Zone The Honeysuckles, Vic | a added on October 23, 2014 | Answered

I have a lemon tree in a pot (recently potted) and the leaves are curling backwards. Could this be due to our very close proximity to the beach or the amount of wind we get here?

I don't know how close you are to the shore, but if you put your lemon tree so that the house is protecting it from salt wind, that is the most you can do.
