Hi. I have 3 lemon trees, each bearing small fruits. I keep them in my bathroom during the winter which they seem to approve of except that they keep dropping their leaves and I don't why and if there is anything I can do to stop it. Can anyone help please? Thankyou.



Depends how many leaves are dropping - they do lose some leaves, so as long as you've got half the leaves still on the tree, and new ones coming, it's fine. It probably prefers being outside, but it can't be, obviously, during the winter. I have a client who has a lemon tree and keeps it in the shed all winter - by the time spring arrives, it's often got no leaves at all, but it revives once repotted and put outside and fed, perhaps pruned a bit if necessary.
