I have a calamondin Orange which has been living in my conservatory for the last few months, I moved it into the lounge as it was begining to lose its leaves and now has lost most of them!! What am I doing wrong?



It sounds as if it got too cold in the conservatory. It will releaf so reduce the watering and just wait.

Thank you for your advice I will do as you say and hopefully it'll recover Happy New Year!

I had one for several years over 20yrs back and it often did it. I had oranges on it one year too.
happy new year to you too. :o)

We grow calamondins outdoors here, and they can go nearly bare in the winter, though that is usually a sign of not enough nitrogen the previous fall.
