Cheeky caterpillars found their way into the greenhouse!! This is one of my greenfinger buddy's favorite plants. I don't think I've seen much growth apart from the leaves becoming a darker green. Any advice/tips would be great! #London #lemon #gyo

Citrus are gross feeders 3-4 times a year. Would also suggest a larger pot. @linfoster may have other UK specific advice.

Citrus plants have two different feeds , one for summer and another fir winter when the plant isnt productive . I feed mine twice a week in the summer but only once a month over winter. A slightly larger pot would be good but in summer bring it out of the greenhouse

@linfoster thanks for your help! I'll get it repotted asap. I'm surprised it grew. Do you think it'll grow any bigger in a new pot?
