Answer: Hi Arvind,

Thank you for contacting Yates, the plant looks like suffering from sunburn, it could due to lack of water, excessive sun exposure, extreme weather or young tree which is still establishing it’s root system. The product you need to apply is Yates Water Wise DroughtShield, which works like sunscreen to help protecting your tree from sunburn. You can see the product using the below link.—-protect/yates-waterwise-droughtshield-ready-to-use/

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturalist
