Ok friends. Trees once on the verge of death saved! Pics
I thought I would share some pictures of trees that many had given up on, were going to throw away, or terribly abused by too much water and lousy mixes.
Two trees belonged to a women that had left her plants to be thrown away after her passing.
Here is an orange tree that was on the verge of death due to over watering. It is coming back strong again.
Here is a Lemon Meyer that was left behind from a women that had passed. It was full of yellow leaves along with dead branches, almost dead. It is coming back with new green growth since the winter as you can see some of the old growth has still managed to stay on.
Here's another by the same women that had passed. This one was just about dead, but I gave it a chance. After all this time, it is finally putting out new growth while hanging on to it's previous damaged leaves. This one excites me:-)
See the new growth!?
Here is a Lemon Meyer that my sister almost killed. It had root rot and lost all its leaves. This one took since last summer to leaf out again. For some, they may find them a dime a dozen, but for some reason I find great pleasure in seeing these plants come around even it it takes an amount of time than to just run out and buy a new one.
More to come...I am in the process of saving a few Lemon Meyer's from clay pots, of the Lemon Meyer I am particularly having issues with. I am always discovering a better way to grow them for me. I have already repotted a few in to plastic pots which seem to be doing great!
Thanks for looking
