citrus plants

Posted: 09/10/2012 at 14:10

For years i have fed my citrus plants with the suggested citrus summer & winter specialised foods. This summer i have experimented with liquid tomato food, and have now got the best crop of lemons and limes in many years at a fraction of the cost of the specialised food! Also i have not got the dreaded scale insect problem that i have suffered in the past! Obviously this is still under trial but thought it worth sharing this tip!

Thanks joe4eyes it was the rust that threw me, as they were perfectly healthy a few days ago!

Today i've found the leaves on young plant has got mottled yellow tops and the underside is covered in a kind of rust type effect! this has only just appeared, would like to know if this is due to recent heavy rain after dry spell or too cold! Should i lift the plant after removing damaged leaves and overwinter in greenhouse, as hasn't flowered yet?
