Container meyer lemon tree

Asked July 20, 2019, 9:17 PM EDT

tree has lost the majority of its leaves. I live in the southern California desert. The tree has lots of fruit on it but the leaves keep falling off. Is there any hope for it?

Thank you for your question. It is difficult to diagnose a plant problem with no photo or information about whether the container drains, how much fertilizer, water and sun it gets, or how old is the tree. So, the best I can do is direct you to the following Extension article on their care, and perhaps you can determine what you are doing wrong: https://ucanr.edu/blogs/blogcore/postdetail.cfm?postnum=25682 Hope this helps. Good luck!

Thank you.
