    Now that is what I call rude.

    But I think the lemon is dead and unsaveable from any advice.  

    My supplier, The Citrus Centre, say:
    Almost no water in the winter - if I do that the leaves drop off.  
    Keep in the light - after this winter it would be dead in unheated my greenhouse (min so far -4ºC).  I tried one winter in the greenhouse and it took a year to recover.  
    It's now in a ±45cm pot, in my quite light garage, min +10ºC, watered with ca 1 litre of fertiliser-added rain water on Sundays.  Some leaves are dropping.
     I also suspect the poster's lemon  may have been overcropped the first year.
      location: Surrey Hills, England, cretaceous acidic sand.

    Huh?  Normally when people ask for advice they come back and say 'thank you' or respond in one way or another. Some people spend a lot of time answering questions and drawing on their experience to do so.  So....you could say the OP is being rude......

    Who cares?  We have all learnt something from this thread!!  

    The OP may be sick.
    A good hoeing is worth two waterings.
