Hi Tanya,

Sometimes when a new tree is planted it can develop a condition called transplant shock and may drop its leaves. Watering in a product such as diluted Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate can help the plant recover from stress. Also overwatering can also cause leaf drop. Check how wet the soil is around the plant and ensure good drainage.
