Please help, Meyer Lemon Tree Disease??
To start, I am not an experienced gardner and lack having a green thumb as they say. so any advise is appreciated.
10 days ago I purchase a Meyer Lemon Tree. It is quite large, I was told that it is 52 years old. The last 5 days or so I've been concerned that it might have some type of disease.
I have noticed:
1.)The leaves have a chalky substance on them, similar to a residue after water drops dried.
2) On few of the lemons that are mostly green have spots of a cream color along with veins of dried out peel.
3) On the one lemon that has turned yellow, there are dark indented spots on it and 1 with a sap like substance coming out.
Did my garden center sell me a disease tree?? Or am I just paranoid from my fear of killing it from lack of experience. We paid 250.00 for it and I don't want it to die.
I appreciate any help that anyone can provide.
