How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

Brown rot is caused by multiple species of Phytophthora when conditions are cool and wet. Brown rot develops mainly on fruit growing near the ground when Phytophthora spores from the soil are splashed onto the tree skirts during rainstorms; infections develop under continued wet conditions.
A: Brown spots or lesions on citrus usually mean one thing: brown rot. Brown rot is a disease that affects all parts of the tree, but is most often observed on the fruit. It is transmitted via various forms of the pathogen, Phytophthora, which resides in the soil.
Are Brown Spots On Lemons Safe To Eat? Brown spots on lemons may be safe to eat, but if the brown spots are from spoilage, then the lemon is not safe to consume and should be thrown out.
Citrus Alternaria Brown Spot is a fungus spread mainly by wind-driven spores. Spores grow on mature, wilted twigs and mature leaves and produce brown lesions on leaves and fruit. Citrus Alternaria Brown Spot can also be transported by the activities of pruning, picking, and transporting trees.
Lack of Warmth and Sunlight

Your tree location may be too shaded. Or the weather conditions may have an impact. Long periods of cold or cloudy weather with little sun and heat can slow ripening down. Frost can severely damage your lemon tree.

Mix with honey water. Dilute 2 tablespoons of honey with 1 cup of water, mix cut fruit with the diluted honey.
The rust mite feeds on the outside exposed surface of fruit that is 0.5 inch (1.3 cm) or larger. Feeding destroys rind cells and the surface becomes silvery on lemons, rust brown on mature oranges, or black on green oranges.
Do dehydrated lemons turn brown? Yes, in two cases. Using too high heat in your dehydrator or oven can cause the sugars to brown. They aren`t necessarily burned, but turning down the temperature can really help.
Ways to tell a lemon has gone bad

Bright yellow lemons radiate sunshine and happiness, but a spoiled lemon exhibits brown spots, discoloration, and utter sadness (via Lucky Belly). Dark green or white lemons with dusty or fuzzy molded skin are inedible and color alterations mean the fruit is tainted.

Soft Spots – rotten lemons may have mushy spots or wet pockmarked areas. The mushy spots may be a slightly darker yellow, brown, or black. Dry Flesh – if the lemon feels light or you cut it open and it looks dry or the flesh has pulled away from the skin and feels gummy, the lemon is past its prime.
Symptoms and Signs

These include reduced vigor, dull green leaf color, poor new growth, and twig dieback. If extensive root damage occurs, the leaves suddenly wilt and dry on the tree. The disease usually starts in larger roots and spreads into the crown.

Yellow and curled foliage with some brown spots on citrus leaves signals that tiny pests may be feasting under the leaves, such as aphids, mites, or plant hoppers. Solution: Apply plant-based pesticides such as pyrethrum or rosemary oil in the late afternoon.

Citrus trees can suffer with phytophthora, root rot and other soil borne diseases. Citrus needs to be a full sun position with good drainage. Perhaps you could check on the drainage and make sure the water is draining freely and the soil is not saturated.

How do you use roundup to kill a tree stump? – Roundup "" Weed & Grass Killer
ANSWER : Hello, I am a grower and licensed pesticides applicator (40 yrs exp).
Roundup lost the trade mark years ago,”glyphosphate” which is now marketed (cheaper) under many other names,
Will kill a live tree if sprayed on the leaves! Also will damage young trees if you just get over spray on the trunk while spraying weeds.
Also, kills grass as well as broadleaved plants.
To kill a tree you would need to spray the leaves, then wait at least a month before cutting the tree down. I have successfully killed a few stumps by spraying the live suckers.
Be especially careful of spray drift as the finer the droplets are the more effective the chemical is. Read the label!

also, you can take out the line sizer (cutter) from the trimmer cover.
