"Thanks Christy. Some of the citrus are around 2 years old and some at least 7 years. They all are in the same area and get some sun (trees surrounding them are growing up however). They have good drainage but did not see any extra watering from me…"
"i have some citrus which were planted in completely the wrong place, and have been working on getting them healthier over the past couple of years. some of them did die though :( they like good drainage in winter, and watered in summer, and a sunny…"
Help - my citrus are in a bad way. I don't know what to do. I mulched with seaweed last year and pruned. Unrelated to that I am sure I have little to no fruit and heaps of bugs and mites. Very sad lemon and other citrus.Any suggestions?

Thank you Judy, that was sweet and so was hearing your memories, I remember climbing high in to a pine tree behind the ballet school it took me months to workout how to get up, but once i was up i climb as high as I could, the feeling was wonderful. years and years latter I when to visit that tree I guess I was feeling nastalgic, But when I looked up I could reach my highest place with my hands, I guess it wasn't as high as I remembered But I still couldn't Climb it anymore. LOL....
My favourite plant is The blue honeywort flower,It has a lovely show and every year it gets better. But I love it because my mother found it in a gardening nursery in keri keri, and noboby knew what it was so they sold it to her for one dollar, she planted it and it was maniffercsent every year it got better and she proudly gave some to me, so I planted it in my front garden and went sreaching the garden books to find it, and find it I did. Even though I don't have it now as ladies got their husband to drop them of in front of my neighbours and pick them up infront of my other neighbour, some how they didn't think I could see them, I didn't mind but if they had asked I would have told them the story as well and maybe keep one for me...LOL nevermind I've ordered It today online so I will have it next spring. I think everything in our garden inspires us or somone eles, your mother didn't like white flowers but something inspired her to have them, some special thing! You will have inspired your daughter, I'm sure if you ask her there will be something in the garden that reminds her of you.
