Answer: Hi Jane,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

From the photo provided the plant is not showing the signs of the fungal issue leaf curl. The damage to the leaves are due to an attack by a chewing pest. The yellowing on the leaves can be due to the plant slowly moving towards dormancy as the weather starts to cool.

In this case, as it is late in the season, it is not viable to treat for the pest. We would however, recommend that you give the tree a good feed with Yates Thrive Naturals Citrus & Fruit Pelletised Plant Food. This will help provide the tree with a boost of nutrients to take in prior to going dormant in the winter.

Kind regards
