Answer: if the leaves have turned brown on the edges and ends it could be scorching from fertilisers or salty irrigation water and probably not a disease. If the leaves have dried green it could simply be lack of water or damage from hot dry winds. To be sure it would be worth taking a sample to a nursery to confirm this. Check soil moisture 15cm down in the root zone and use a soil wetter if the ground doesn’t seem to be absorbing water. Seaweed tonic and a light prune might help encourage new growth. Dont fertilise if soil is dry or you are unable to water. Wait for good rain and use some Dynamic Lifter. happy gardening!
