David starts with ...
Hi I planted my navel tree (Washington) about three yrs ago from the beginnig I have had oranges, last year a good crop, this year one orange and no blossoming the tree seems to be growing ok the leaves seem to be yellowing and some curling, previous seasons i have used Rose/citrus fert, I also use seasol this year because of no fruit I have used used epsom salts now I have tried chelated Iron, is there another reason for not fruiting.
Regards David

Looks actually like manganese deficiency to me, which is more prevalent in sandy soils. Zinc/mang deficiencies often go together. I would take a ph test first, because often times these trace elements are locked up in the soil, rather than being completely lacking.
