Anybody know what I'm doing wrong if my citrus leaves (mexican lime in a large pot) are curling. Other than that, it is very happy looking and covered with blooms. I'm in the Hill Country and have protected it from freezes.

Curling leaves can can be the symptom of very small insects like aphids and spider mites but it can also be caused by fungal disease. Spray aerated compost or the entire Garrett Juice formula but add cornmeal juice to the spray. Soak a cup horticultural cornmeal or whole ground cornmeal in a 5 gallon bucket a water to make the CM juice. Use it full strength as the water for the compost tea or Garrett Juice for best results.
