Lemon tree very pretty

Early Spring is the time to give your citrus some extra love and care with some fertilizer (they should have new blossom and tiny fruit buds) and make sure you keep the water up to them.

And keep and eye out for bugs, particularly citrus leaf miner which seems to like all the fresh soft leaves that are sprouting now. As I only garden organically I simply remove a leaf when I notice this bug’s larvae or eggs on the leaf or you could wipe the leaves with a olive oil and detergent wash – this could double as your daily meditation too!
