El lemon Tree needs to be in a sheltered place even though full sun because it is very sensitive to frost. During the winter, it is recommended to protect it with a plastic to prevent it from suffering excesses from the cold. When watering, hard water must be avoided, that is, those with excess salts.

      Hello rosa.
      Copper oxychloride fungicides are the most effective against gummies. You can get it at nurseries and garden stores.
