I know this a rather off message, but I don't know where else to put it. I have several lime and lemon trees, Bearss Seedless
and Eureka mostly. They are suffering at the moment from badly curled but healthy leaves, with no sign of leaf miners
on these leaves, although they have that problem as well. This is a Bearss Seedless, planted this Spring, in very alkaline,
stony soil, although some planted in compost in large pots get the same problem. It has been a very hot summer, 30-35C, but this
plant has been watered regularly, usually every couple of days. Too much? It has also had citrus feed every 3 months or so, as
recommended on the packet. They all flower and fruit well, sometimes excessively, and apart from leaf miners and scale, have
no real problems. Glad of any advice.

Hi Billure. In answer to your first question...The Garden Pest and Disease Forum would be the likely best place to post.

Here is some info on citrus leaf curl.

Thanks for your help, moonhowl. Fantastic links for citrus diseases, of which I have a good selection.

You are most welcome. Citrus can be a pain in the neck, but the rewards outweigh the hassle...grin
