I have a 3 year old potted dwarf meyer lemon tree that's not doing particularly well at the moment. It's never had a huge abundance of leaves, but a few weeks ago there was a particularly windy storm and it lost a lot of leaves. Yesterday it had about half a dozen leaves. Today it's down to two!
I'm in the southern hemisphere, so it's mid-spring. Some of the branches look unhealthy (maybe already dead) but most are still green, and it's still budding like crazy. I feed it sporadically with Osmocote citrus pellets, and water it approximately weekly.
I assume that flowering is taking up a lot of the plant's resources, so I guess I should pull off all the buds ASAP. Is there anything else I should be doing? I've read citrus can be quite hardy plants, but this is the worst state mine has been in. Two leaves does not make a tree.
