Hi Joanne,

The Feijoa tree may have just gone into a bit of transplant shock.

Ensure the tree gets plenty of water over this time, Use a liquid fertiliser such as Tui Organic Seaweed Plant Tonic and spray the foliage weekly, this might help the tree recover.

Check the soil you have planted the tree in, good drainage is a must and add any compost and sheep pellets if the soil is a bit poor.

Take and damaged limbs off the tree.

The tree won’t really grow much over winter but hopefully, with the burst of spring it will bounce back and you will see a new flush of growth.

Good luck
