Last Year my husband did a weed and feed on our grass shortly after the leaves on our orange tree yellowed and fell off. the leaves started coming back last year and there are more this year. Do you think its going to recover and bear fruit again? Its a navel orange tree.

Weed and Feed can really do damage when applied beneath broadleaf trees. The residue should have weathered away by now and I expect you'll continue to see your orange tree recover and eventually flower and bear fruit. It will just take time. Try to avoid putting herbicides beneath the canopy of your tree and you'll avoid future damage.

Best wishes with your landscape!
