Should I Fertilize the Lemon Tree

skyfox added on May 13, 2011 | Answered

I recently posted about a lemon tree that was first allowed to dry out, and all the leave curled, though they are still green. I then created a dam around the tree to water it. I turned the water on and went to walk the dog, forget the water was on and it ran for (I am ashamed to say this) eight hours. So now the tree roots are saturated. After having made all these blunders, will adding Miracle Gro citrus spikes around the base of the tree help the tree recover - or make the problem worse? I was told to remove the fruit healthy and otherwise, which I have.

Yes, the fertilizer spikes will help nourish the tree while it recovers.
