Lemon Tree, very pretty ...The state of my lemon tree – it makes me so sad that my lemon tree is in such a poor state. Everything else in my garden appears to be doing well, the plants seem happy, all spouting new growth and some have new flowers. But the Lemon Tree …

As you can see she doesn’t look good. We’ve sprayed, we’ve mulched, we’ve fertilised … now we wait.

Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat
“.

Off to the nursery to get Nasturtiums …

* Chorus of “Lemon Tree” by Peter, Paul & Mary.
