If you have any amount of trees or shrubs in your yard you have probably noticed, especially with the wind we’ve been having, a lot of leaves turning yellow and falling to the ground. Some Springs seem to be more significant than others, but it is very common for citrus,oleander,hibiscus,orchid,live oak, jacaranda….to slough off lots of foliage as they begin to bloom and put on a flush of new spring growth. This process must happen for “evergreen” trees and shrubs at some point during the growing season, some do it throughout, in order for old growth to be replaced by new. I can tell you that my back patio is a mess with citrus blossoms and leaves right now! The flip side is ,however, is my citrus trees are the prettiest now of any time of year. There is nothing like that shiny new green foliage as it envelops the whole canopy of the tree. Making sure your trees and shrubs are properly fertilized will minimize this process and insure that new growth comes on fast and full. We recommend Organo and Fertilome brand fertilizers. They are developed for our growing conditions and have formulas that best suite how we plant here in the desert.
