My Mandarin tree’s leaves have slowly been turning yellow for months now. The new leaves are all curled up. It seems stunted now – it doesn’t seem to be getting bigger at all. I bought it a year ago, planted it in a large pot, and have fed it Citrus Food twice this year. It is an Encore Dwarf variety. What could the problem be?

  1. Some insect pests will cause some leaf curl. In spring, aphids might do this on soft new leaves. Look inside the curl for presence of insects. If none are present, consider 2 or 3 below. 2. Overwatering can cause leaves to curl or cup INWARD. Also, stress from very hot weather will cause leaf cupping 3. Sometimes leaves will cup DOWNWARD in the late fall or early winter. This is not a problem to worry about, as the new growth will come out with normal shaped leaves in the spring. Your Citrus sounds like it needs a spray with Super Spraying Oil by Kiwicare. Pop into your local store to purchase some. This will sort any problems with insects and is an organic product.
