Have you noticed how cool it has been this July and August? This means you may have to actually reduce watering. I noticed a Japanese quince that is showing signs of slowed water uptake. The leaves had changed their appearance, so I stuck my finger into the soil. It was still wet even though I had not watered in 24 hours. I reduced water and hope it becomes healthy again. Maintain your fertilization program. It is easy to get lazy. Your trees will be healthier and more beautiful…
