Q.Lemon tree leaves yellowing, curling, and have holes in them.

Zone Castro Valley, 94546, California | tituslj added on March 9, 2018 | Answered

The lemon tree’s leaves in our garden has been yellowing starting out as spots/patches before turning the whole leaves yellow. We notice that a lot of the newer leaves growing out at the top of the tree has also started curling up, with some sort of sludge on them while others are just riddled with holes. What is wrong with our tree and what can we do to fix it hopefully? We have had quite a wet weather this past week so I don’t think its from lack of water at least.

No, if anything, they are getting too wet. There is not much that you can do to stop this. You can, however, apply both dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur to the soil. This will correct the majority of the issue.

The insect problem can be corrected in many ways as well. I will include a link to a collection of articles that will give you information on crafting your own pesticides, along with many other organic gardening tips: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/organic/
