Here is my submission to the plant clinic over at Garden Rant.
My Meyer lemon has been growing in a pot for a few years (maybe as long as six?) and for the last few years it just hasn't been as happy as it once was. I get a dozen or so lemons a year from this tree which is fine because I can get lemons from several friends with bigger trees in the ground. Maybe I should find a spot and stick mine in the ground too. I did repot it two years ago with fresh potting soil. I give it some organic citrus fertilizer every so often. It gets plenty of sun, I'm careful about watering it and I decorate it with it's own string of piazza lights in the winter to ward off frost. But the bottom line is it is just not healthy looking. The leaves are yellowed and it doesn't have much new growth. It isn't blooming much this year...at least so far it only has a few blooms. I like the idea of citrus in pots...I think they make pretty container plants. But this one is not living up to my expectations!
