Question: I bought a new home and was lucky to get a mango tree along with it,but the leaves are falling off and it only bare one mango. I sprayed it with insect spray and new leaves grew, but insects are eating the leaves again. I want a better crop next year, what can i do

Answer: Venesa,

You will need to act sooner to protect the leaves when insects show up. Try to maintain even soil moisture as dry or soggy wet soils can really stress the tree. I would also visit your County Extension Office for local tips and free info on caring for a mango tree in your area. Their contact info is:

Miami-Dade County Extension

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
