Sap on Trunk of Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree

9 years ago

Hello all,
I'm new to the forum (and gardening in general) and have seen lots of great contributors so I'm hoping I can get some help with an issue I have with a new dwarf Meyer Lemon tree I purchased a couple months ago from Armstrong Garden Centers. I've been noticing some yellowing of the leaves over the past few weeks, but I live near the beach (Zone 10B, I believe) and I just assume it was the transplanting of the tree and the chillier weather we've been having lately. In other aspects the tree seems to be doing ok with respect to being alive. It has been sprouting lots of blooms all over the place the last 2 weeks and I have been pinching them, but as you can see in a pic below there are still many. It's an energetic little guy. Regardless of the yellowing, I was looking at the tree today and noticed a good amount of sap dripping off the trunk. I've done some 'googling' of the issue, but haven't really come up with much. Any thoughts? Thanks for your help.
