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.
The lemon tree is about ten years old and has always had regular looking lemons - this year they have started off yellow but quickly turned brown
It could be rust mite damage or citrus melanose. Here is more:
Hello. My citrus tree used to be getting good oranges and lemons, but when my son poured miracle grow I noticed the oranges I had a thick rind and rough. All my tiny lemons fell off. Any solution? Please help.
This sounds like the added nitrogen is too much. It can be slightly difficult to remove this excess nitrogen, but the easiest way is with nitrogen consuming plants.
Hi! I purchased this lemon tree about 3 months ago and over the last few weeks it has started developing yellow spots all over its leaves. I\\\'m not doing anything differently and I potted it in a special potting soil for citrus. Advice would be appreciated, thank you
I'm not seeing any signs of infestation. It doesn't seem like a nutritional deficiency, since you have it in specific soil.
You could check pH, but your area should be experiencing some seasonal changes at this time. This would explain yellow foliage. Leaves can fall off with a more drastic change, but it won't harm anything. It'll regrow leaves.
They are likely not hardy in your area, unless you purchased one for your area, specifically.

It looks like a gall or a green stick , but it’s alive and squishy like a caterpillar
Yes, that is the chrysalis of the beautiful Giant Swallowtail butterfly, the largest butterfly in the U.S. Its caterpillar eats the leaves of its host plant, citrus. Its feeding won't kill your lemon tree and the leaves should grow back. You may want to get some other host plants in the citrus family to divert them from your lemon tree.
Here are some other host plants:
herb rue - Ruta graveolens
Prickly ash – Zanthoxylum americanum
Hop tree – Ptelea trifoliata
Here is info and a photo of the Giant Swallowtail and its caterpillar.
Hello why my lemon tree leaves curling and also producing fruits only on top?
I see the typical signs of Phyllocnistis citrella. Those winding trails point towards an infestation. This will be best controlled with beneficial predators like the parasitic wasp.
I noticed that there is a red shinny came out at the bottom of my tree. My neighbor said my tree is dying. Is that true? Why are there still lemons growing on top? Can I still fix it?
Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I cannot see the issue in question and I'm not sure what is meant by "shinny". However, I will assume that you are referring to a shoot coming from the base of the tree. This will indicate that the grafted rootball specimen is "waking up". It can be a sign of stress that your tree is experiencing, but it can just be a sign of a vigorous root ball, as well. This really depends on the health of the rest of the tree.
Since the tree is producing fruit, I will assume that these "suckers" are a normal part of your rootball. They will stop as the tree ages. Just continue to remove them as you see them.
