Satsuma tree leaf curls

wastingyouthOctober 15, 2009

I have a 5 year old, potted satsuma tree that was perfectly healthy and thriving. However i went on holiday for 9 days and left the tree with no care. When i returned the leaves are all dry and curled up. I have been watering it just like before but still the leaves remain dry and curled. The leaves are still green. What can i do to make it healthy again. I want to pick the leaves off, should i?

Thanks

I wouldn't pick the leaves off. Don't see how that can help now that you are watering again. Sounds like it got way too dry while you were away. I suspect you knew that would happen. If not, you do now. You just need to wait until it can regrow some new roots. If the limbs die back, prune off the dead after it starts to grow.
