My poor little lemon tree looks like it's dying. The leaves are drooping bad. I have an orange tree that is twice the size of the lemon tree and it's doing okay. It is rainy season here and it was fine until about 10 days ago. I brought it in to the overhang where it can still "see" sunlight but the rain can't get to it. I made a spray of 1 tbsp epsom salts to a gallon of water and misted the leaves only. I also cut off the baby lemons it had growing on it. Is there anything else I can/should do? I do give my trees citrus fertilizer once a month. Any help would be appreciated.

If there is no other fruit tree in her area, she will constantly have problems of not growing well or producing good and edible fruit. Have her plant another tree or ask a neighbor if they would be interested in planting another fruit tree in the area. (04/13/2007)
urine thing? (04/13/2007)
There is another lemon tree over the fence that is producing the most beautiful lemons, she has two different types of fruit in her yard, all are doing wonderfully. Oh hehehe the "urine thing" its got to do with the uric acid,in wee. Its really good for the tree, my nana had a orchard that produce lemons and she had 6 boys, hence its not appropriate for females to participate. :) (04/13/2007)
