Q.yellow leaves kaffir plant

Anonymous added on November 25, 2014 | Answered

My 1 year old kaffir plant has older dark green leaves and newer yellow green leaves that do not turn dark green. The plant was bought in Holland and has a place at 1 meter from a southeast exposed wall in the southeast of Crete (Greece). It has sun from early morning until early afternoon. The soil is mainly loamy. I made a 60 diameter and 80cm deep hole in which I mixed dry peat and loam 50/50. Temperature until now over 20C by day and around 15C by night, lowest winter temp. isn’t under 5C in the night. As far as I can see, the soil is drained enough. What to do?

It sounds like it is lacking nutrients, either nitrogen or iron. Give the tree some fertilizer that contains both these nutrients.
