Kumquat Trees With Very Cupped Leaves
Gardening Question From Andrew:
I have 3 kumquat trees in my garden area. Two are 3 years old, one is about 5 years old. My soil is very low in N and K. A lot of 5 year old’s leaves are somewhat yellow. I do feed on a regular basis with organic EB Stone citrus fert. I have a single ring of 1 gph – 18″spacing- emitter tubing around each tree. (So roughly a total of 4 gph capacity per tree. I live in zone 9B which includes 2 months of very hot weather — several conseq. days >100. The trees bloom profusely but do not set fruit. Many of the leaves are cupping. I water the trees about 1 hour every two weeks. Am I possibly not watering enough? Or, too much. Sorry for the sketchy facts — best my pea brain is capable of. Absolutely LOVE your posts.
