    Charles can you please help. We are close to Walnut Creek and we moved to our house a year and a half ago, 6 beautiful lemon trees and 1 short lime. Very old. Well they are looking horrible for the last 8 months. I tried scotts fert for citrus etc. We are new to citrus but love having them.
    Can you please recommend a citrus specialist who can come see if we have diseases just suck at taking care of them?

    Thank you.

    I'm in Sf bayarea and Im closer to the bay and i have a nice microclimate zone 10a sunset zone 17. Walnut Creek is more inland than me. That is why they get much colder.

    Hows the deer problem?
    I was over in Pinole and stone fruits did well….but my subtropicals did not ripen or set fruits. So I moved to Fallbrook and the rest is history….still have some frost issues at the bottom of canyon but now I can grow mangoes and many other sensitive fruits….glad you are setting the high bar….

    Literally nothing about these fruits got me excited. All standard boring stuff that can (apart from Citrus) easily be grown in much colder climates than what Bay Area has. I'm pretty sure it's possible to grow more exotic trees in zone 9b.

    I wonder why people in Bay Area grow so many lemon trees?

    Couldn’t you have protected the trees from sun and winter cold by having faster growing taller trees to protect from sun and cold? More of an actual Forrest vibe?

    The taller trees protect the lower trees and the lower trees protect the trunk of the taller trees from sunburn?

    And then you wouldn’t have to paint them?

    Also wouldn’t this help retain the water in the soil to save on water bill?

    I’m not a gardener just been watching YouTube videos thinking of getting into it and live in the Bay Area. So looking for tips 🙂

    Great fruit orchard! We grew up in WC and remember everyone growing all kinds of fruit trees. We still have family there that grows pomelo, blood orange, Valencias, olives, sapote, loquat, feijoa, macadamia, plums, and strawberry guava. The cherries and apricots never bear fruit, although they used the live down the hill where we had more chill hours growing up, and we had tons of apricots and some cherries there. Amazing growing climate there.

    Mr Charles I didn't know you can eat the whole fruit of green almond.When my almond tree give me fruit again I will try it. You have very big yard there in Walnut Creek must be rare ? I'm practically your neighbor, I live in Hercules I'm starting to plants 🌱 more fruit trees 🌲 in my yard. I'd planted almost 30 trees in ground & about 40 in I guess 30 gallons pots last 3 months.Some are rare citrus 🍊. My kumquat are the side of lemon 🍋. Lemon side of orange 🍊also some tropical. Hope the tropical 🌴 live through this winter ❄️. I'm waiting for January to get bare roots stone fruit trees 🌲 and more tropical 🌴. Lowe's sale them so it must grow
    in our area ( Bay Area )
