My peach tree leaves are turning brown and dry around the edges.

My peach tree is 4 yrs old and has produced a good crop of beautiful fruit each year. This year the leaves are turning brown and dry around the edges all over the tree. What could be causing this?

Answer: Hi Melinda,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

Brown edge on plant leaves generally indicates watering related issue, either too much or not enough. Best to check the frequency of watering and adjust accordingly.

Also lack of soil drainage could contribute to the issue. I suggest improving soil by digging in some garden compost and Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
