    I forgot to add for lemon trees, apparently the best treatment for them is to have blokes pee under them, now this is something I will not allow but I suspect my son might have done it without me knowing.

    I have heard that one before! These citrus will have to put up with the males here cocking their legs on the trunks.

    If you want to supply urea for the citrus - ie nitrogen and phosphorus, good for all fruit trees...

    Pee in a bucket until you have about 3/4 to 1 litre then pour that in a 9 or 10 litre watering can, fill that up (with rain water if you have it) and pour around under the citrus, near the edge of the tree (aka the drip line), not on the trunk please, you don't want to burn the poor thing. If you have dogs cocking legs - I suggest you put a few stakes around the edge of the tree and pour some pee on that to encourage them to cock their legs on the stakes at the edge of the tree.

    Pee is good but it's best diluted about 1 part pee to 10 parts water, especially the first thing in the morning pee.

    OMG!!! I am NOT going to pee in a bucket! (and no one suggest I go and squat out there either...)

    I'd rather go buy some lemons!

    Why not GAG

    Me and Di Dee do it. And a few others, I forget exactly who.

    Pee is sterile when it comes out of you. Unless you've got a bladder infection.

    You can borrow my boys, the youngest two always ask if they can "water the trees". They'd love to help out!!!

    The only thing with my sons pee would be that it would be mixed with copious amounts of home brew, which is why I said no to the peeing on my Lemonaide Tree.

    Extra vitamins and minerals? It's unlikely there'd be any alcohol cos that gets metabolised by the liver and if there was - disinfectant and evapourate away.
