|It's difficult to diagnose a plant problem without seeing it so I can only offer common causes: Yellowing leaves on a kumquat tree are usually caused by overwatering. This past winter has been exceptionally wet and if your soil doesn't drain well, a few extra inches of rain can really cause problems! If the yellowing leaves have deep green veins, the yellowing is probably iron chlorosis and you can sprinkle a little Ironite around the base of the tree to help them green up. Hope this helps you determine just what the problem might be.
