Dwarf Meyer Lemon with chlorosis
This poor tree has been a wonderful producer. A couple of years ago I noted some chlorosis so gave it ironite. No change.
Life complications arose and it was ignored other than water for quite a while.
This spring the fruit set was much less than usual. I learned that our alkaline soil can block iron absorption.
Since Spring, in addition to organic fruit tree fertilizer per schedule, I have used Epsoma Soil Acidifier and Ironite, twice. No change. I found a liquid acidifier and chelated iron supplement and have used that per instructions.n Twice. There is still no change. There is new growth, and the lemons are growing, but the new growth looks the same as the old. A dwarf valencia orange 10 feet away is coming around beautifully and has great dark green new growth.
The "cures" were deeply watered in, and the tree has been on a deep watering schedule appropriate for Phoenix. Am I expecting too much, too quickly? It's been months! Am I missing something?
THank you all, I learn so much from Gardenweb.
