My Arizona soil is sandy, and there is so little of needed nutrients in the soil what should I add to help my poor sickly trees?

Sandy soils are great in providing fast drainage but they don't hold nutrients so you'll want to feed your trees throughout the growing season. Use a specialized citrus and nut tree fertilizer or broadcast a general purpose garden fertilizer beneath your trees four times a year. The usual recommendation is to feed in March, June, September and December. The exact amounts to apply will depend upon the sizes of your trees and will be listed on the fertilizer label. Hope your trees perk up soon!
