Lemon Problems: The cold has damaged my lemon



Page1-2-3-4-5- 6


Egr. Dr. Davoli,

I hope you still remember me and especially my lemon tree that you have been able to save with so much care.

Well, several months have passed since my last email, and as you can see from the attached photos, the plant I would say has recovered quite well, don't you think?

I followed your advice and instructions carefully and meticulously, Doctor, and it seems to me that they were all spot on!

Despite this, I wanted to bring to your attention some "anomalies" of the plant: first of all my curiosity turns to the size of some leaves, which as you can well notice, in proportion to my hand have particularly handsome dimensions! ... is such a thing normal? In previous years, even during the period of best growth, the leaves had always maintained a size, let's say "normal" ...

Second thing, I wanted to ask you what two things depend on the leaves: the anomalous "doubling" (visible in the photo below)

and crumpling (visible in the photos below).

While waiting to hear from you, I take this opportunity to thank you again for reviving my now almost deceased and ten-year-old lemon tree.

Thank you so much.

Alessandro (August)


Hi Alessandro,

thank you for keeping me updated on the state of health of the lemon that I am pleased to see is fine ... I am very happy.

The size of the plant is fine. Consider this: How old was it that you didn't change the earth? You never told me anything about how it was normally taken care of, fertilization, repotting, etc. In any case, the plant has responded more than well to the care given and is now bursting with health.

Regarding the splitting of the sheets, I refer to the answer I gave to Livio for the same problem.

Crumpled leaves are mostly a symptom of an aphid attack. I would advise you to intervene as soon as possible using the Confidor (both the Confidor 200 SL and the Confidor Giardino are fine) and for the doses follow the instructions and all the precautions reported in the package. I prefer to recommend this product as it is easy to find even at nurseries because it is widely used in gardening. It is a systemic product, that is to say that it enters the plant and is absorbed by insects during sucking with their stinging - sucking mouthparts. Now generally the treatments are done at the vegetative restart of the plant, therefore in spring, but I think it is not the case to procrastinate. The only recommendation is to wait for the weather to cool and a cloudy and cool day to begin, after which just one treatment in the evening. Then wait for next spring and see the situation.

From the photo you sent me I see that the limestone continues to rage. Have you followed the advice to let the water settle while waiting to be able to collect rainwater? Were you able to find the earthworms to put inside the jar?

Keep me informed. Good day.

Dr. M. G. Davoli
