I have an Orange tree and it only produced 6 Oranges this first year. They were very sweet and seedless. What can I do for them to produce more oranges?

Two my Banana Tress are being killed slowly my neighbors. You see torn leaves and after a while it turns yellow and starts to die. The banana tree is so tall that the leaf goes over the side of my neighbors? house.

And, what did I do wrong to my oregano plant? It was outside on the balcony and I put them inside because of the cold. But the leaves look burnt?

What can I do for all three matters?

As your orange tree matures, it will set additional fruit. So, the best thing to do is to be patient and to continue giving it good care. Eventually you'll have lots and lots of sweet, tasty fruit.

It sounds as though your banana trees are encroaching on your neighbors property and they are within their rights to remove anything hanging over onto their property. A solution would be to move the trees further into your yard so the leaves won't hang over into your neighbor's yard.

The oregano plant is probably suffering because it was moved. While it may be warmer indoors, the light level is lower and the air is drier. Cutting the tops of the plants down and moving them back outdoors should prompt some healthy new growth.

Best wishes with your plants!
