Why doesn't my mandarine tree have lots of fruit and healthy leaves?

Hi, My poor mandarine tree is about 3 years old now. It is planted in full sun and has sandy loam soil. The ph is correct. I fertilized it with citrus tree fertilizer about 6 months ago. I can't see any bugs, insects or signs of disease. Everyone elses mandarine trees are full of leaves and mandarines at this time and mine looks terrible. What could be wrong with it and how do I fix it? Thank You

Hi Jenny,

It would appear that the mandarin has died and will not respond to any seaweed or fertilising. I'm sorry but you will have to purchase a new plant. Choose an area that is free draining and sunny. Prepare the soil by adding compost and blood and bone prior to planting. Mix in well and leave for a couple of days. After planting apply some Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate to help promote new root growth. Keep the area around the trunk clear of weeds and grass.
