Help!!!!!!!!!!!! our citrus trees are not happy JAN,. I don`t know what they are missing (maybe home?) They get plenty of sun,when we do :wink: We feed them according to the best gardeners guidelines but............... they look awful,plenty fowers/fruit but look very unloved :cry: the leaves are curled on some... no grubs, and yucky :? looking on others. Any ideas???? Our olive trees are in the same area and they look great. Thanks fellow gardeners. Enrico

INSECT!!! as attack your tree
spray with dish washing liquid, it worked for my tree,
I put a few drop of that stuff at the other end of the hose
with the spring ready, get some body at the other end to help
put the tap on , 2-4 time of this and ploblem solve
then give it a good fertiliser like blood and bone
good l.

Hi Enrico,

Could you post a photo of the tree? It may help to identify.

Here's a link to another post about citrus problems - it may help you in the meantime:
