I planted the tree six months ago and has sudden dieback. This happened to three other orange trees (all different varieties) I planted a couple of years ago and they kept doing it for about a year. All my other citrus (about 8 x trees) have been ok, I feed them all exactly the same.

Answer: Hi Alan,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

I would suggest starting with soil pH and making sure the reading is neutral. Also, it’s worth checking if there are any soil born insects such as African Black Beetles and Curl grubs, which chew on the roots of the plants and cause diebacks. Now, it’s best to remove the dead brown stems and water in some Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It’s an organically certified fertiliser, which contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
