Q.Lemon Tree Dropping Leaves

Zone 48154 | lmorasso06 added on August 18, 2023 | Answered

My lemon tree was doing great. I had about 9-10 lemons growing, all of a sudden the leaves started turning lighter, and are dropping off rampantly. Now today I noticed it dropped 2 lemons. How can I save it

This could be stress from being rootbound in the container, and resulting nutrient deficiencies. It could be an overwatering issue, as these will appreciate drying out down to about 1/3 of the container between waterings. Either cutting off the bottom 1/3 of the roots and replanting, or replanting into a bigger container will help with both. After that, regular feeding will help.
