    I'd say lime only because the leaves are a bit narrower than my lemon tree but it's just a guess.

    Of course! Why didn't I think of that?

    Ok so broken leaf definitely smells like lime!! 😊 Yay, now I just need my lemon tree to come back to life so I can make lemon & lime flavoured treats!

    Yay! I understand that citrus are the teenagers of the plant world - super hungry and thirsty - maybe some citrus fertiliser will help your lemon to feel better?

    The old owners of this place planted it in a garden bed surrounded by weed mat and covered in a few inches of blue stone gravel. So I think it's just not getting enough water and nutrients. I'm going to dig out around it next week, cut the weed mat right back, remove the gravel, and surround it with good quality citrus fertiliser and soil and give it a good water. Hopefully that will bring it back to life!

    Lucky! I wish I had a lime tree (or that my lemon or orange tree would grow and flower)!

    @Frankenmum I read this thread and felt so inspired by your photo to go out and buy myself a fruit tree. I struggled out of my sick bed and headed out to Bunnings, and then got completely distracted by Woolies and remembering I needed wipes.

    Nek minit, I had spent $120 at Woolies (wtf did I suddenly buy two roasting pans???) and came home sans fruit tree.

    Is it wrong that I blame you a little bit?
