Answer: Hi J,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like a typical issue for tree growing on slopy site. As the gradient increase, there is less water and nutrients available for the trees. Extra water and nutrients will be needed for the smaller trees and it’s worth considering an irrigation system with drip lines. To feed, Try Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. It’s certified for use in organic gardens and will help create a nutrient-rich soil for better root growth, stronger plants and more flowers and fruit! It can be used on gardens all year round, including native plants.
