How do you control citrus gall wasp? What should you feed lemon trees, and how often? What sort of soil do citrus trees like? Do snails eat lemon trees? These are just some of the hundreds of common questions that home citrus growers want answered.
In most cases, the principles in the Grow Great Fruit system that we’ve developed for deciduous fruit trees hold true for citrus, but our knowledge stops there, and so we went looking for some expert help from professional citrus growers.
This manual is absolutely jam-packed with information specific to growing organic citrus, including soil and water management, pest and disease control, and how to manage weeds. It also includes handy sections on converting from chemical to organic production, machinery, energy and wastes, and lists of useful resources.

This years my lemons are very small and the leaves are curling up and a bit yellow.
My plan is to give them more water and fertilise around the base of the tree. Should you dig around the tree and dig the fertiliser in a bit?

Citrus generally are struggling at the moment with the conditions. Yours sounds like it may need a really good feed – organic Dynamic Lifter of aged manure are good. I wouldn’t try to work it into the soil. Just apply to the surface and water in. Hope that helps.
