Brugmansias forum: Brugmansia Yellowing and Losing Leaves

I'm looking for help for our Brugmansia. For 15+ years our Brugmansia has thrived in front of our house. This year it started massively losing leaves after a hot summer. I'm looking for a way to bring it back before I fear it dies. I did have an arborist who injected some nutrients in the roots and I've been watering it more assertively for the past three weeks. We are located in San Francisco.

Pictures from a few years ago and now.

2+ weeks later (regular watering and fertilizer). There is an area of normal looking Brugmansia near the bottom though the top 2/3 still looks sparse. Any thoughts ?

Are you using both liquid fertilizer and granular? Have you deep watered? Are you adding Epsom salt and Ironite to the liquid fertilizer?

Hi, just liquid fertilizer. What kind of granular ? Definitely deep watered. Not adding Epsom sale nor Ironite to liquid fertilizer. Just add the "normal" amount and for how many feedings ? Right now I'm doing feedings once per week.
