Lemon Tree in Container

Anonymous added on August 19, 2011 | Answered

The leaves on my lemon tree are curling. It also seems to drop a lot of leaves. What to do? The tree had lots of flowers and lemons but most of them fell off. I have only 5 left that seem to be growing.

It sounds like the tree has a pest, maybe scale or aphids. It is hard to say as there are several pests that cause this kind of damage. We recommend treating these kinds pest with neem oil. It is safe for humans and animals but is very effective against most destructive plant pests.
