Answer: Hi Sarah,
Thank you for contacting Yates.
It’s likely due to underwatering as the roots are not yet established for the hot summer. Keeping up with watering and adding some liquid Dynamic lifter to help the root growth.

Also, try Yates Water Wise DroughtShield, which works like sunscreen to help protect your tree. Prolonged exposure to the sun will still result in burning, but the effects will be reduced by spraying with Yates DroughtShield.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.
