We have two large michelia figo growing close to each other. One started having a band/section of yellow leaves 4 weeks ago – about half way up. Now those leaves are dead and most of the leaves below this seem to be yellowing. The other tree has some random leaves turning yellow as well. Don’t want to lose these trees. What might be causing it, is there anything we can do?

The yellowing can be contributed to a couple of things. Are they in full sun or part shade, as all day baking hot sun will scorch leaves and turn them yellow. They need well-drained soil too so check if they are not getting wet feet some how. Enrich the soil with enriched with compost or well-rotted cow manure for a boost. If it is a nutrient deficiency which is causing the yellowing it could be a potassium deficiency. Use a fertilizer high in nitrogen and potassium but not too high in phosphate. Also check closely for any bugs/pests.
