Why are the leaves on my Tangello tree yellow and curled up?

my tanjello tree is loaded with fruit but the leaves have turned yellow and curled up some have a brown stain along the spine which spreads and the leaves then drop. I have sprayed with white oil although there is no sign of pests. I have also treated with worm water seaweed solution and epsom salt I will upload a picture hope you can help.

Hi Linda,

Thank you for contacting us regarding your Tanjello tree. The leaves are very yellow looks like Nitrogen deficiency. A seaweed solution isn't a complete fertiliser, it's a plant tonic, which helps to encourage root growth, but doesn't provide other essential nutrients like nitrogen and phosphorus to promote overall plant health and strong growth and development. I suggest you feed it Dynamic Lifter three times a year, in spring summer and autumn. Supplement this during the growing season with some Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Plant Food every fortnight. Dynamic lifter is a complete slow released fertiliser, which is a manure based organic fertiliser, to provide all nutrients your citrus needed to grow and thrive. I would also to suggest take a soil sample to your local nursery and test the pH for any other possible deficiency. Hope this helps and happy gardening. Best Regards, Louise Yates Horticulturalist
