    Default 'Curly' leaves on lemon tree

    Does anyone know the cause of lemon tree leaves going 'curly'. It seems to only be on new growth.

    Just taken a photo but it won't let me upload for some reason, tried using Flickr and also direct from my PC file. The tree is about 5ft and is in approx a 30cm pot, which it has been in for the last year or so. The tree is about 8 years old and has never flowered until this summer when it produced around 5 flowers. It has never been the healthiest of trees but somehow manages to plod on.

    Can't find anything living on it except the odd garden spider
