The Q&A Archives: Yellow Citrus Leaves

Question: I have a citrus tree that is about 2-3 years old and seems to be healthy in all ways except for yellowy leaves. Any ideas?

Answer: Yellow leaves can be a sign of many things, including overwatering, underwatering, transplant shock, shock of a move to a new location, and lack of nitrogen. Citrus are heavy feeders and need a regular fertilization program. If you haven't been fertilizing it, I suggest you use a product formulated for citrus, which will provide the amounts needed on the package.
