What trees are these, are they dying?

    4 responses

Bluetooth19891 starts with ...
Hello. I have just moved to australia, living in WA and I'm renting my first property here. There are some trees in the front garden and I have no idea what they are or how to care for them. The tenancy says mango tree, but neighbours have said they think it's a peach tree.

Winter is here and in the uk everything looks dead but I can't find any info on if the tree with yellow leaves is meant to look like that at this time of year.

There are also some other little trees with red berry things on them, any idea what they are? Thanks

Peach tree yes and its going through a rough patch. The roots could be rotting from too much water, there could be excess fertiliser applied or something in the soil.The Syzygiums look like a young wax apples in the foliage and the fruit look a bit like malay apples.A flower and a chopped open fruit would help.

Thank you for the response, so it appears to be overwatered? I have been here 5 weeks and watered it using a drip retic for 30mins twice a week. We now have a water ban in effect so have not used the retic for a few weeks but it has rained alot the last few weeks.

If i stop watering it all together and just leave it should it stop yellowing and dropping leaves?

Should peach trees ever do what this one is during winter? Or should they always look fresh?

I'd hate to have killed a tree that has been around for years in my first month of being here!

Thanks

Peach trees are deciduous Bluetooth - so it is normal for it to be dropping it's leaves from now on. The plants do look a little hungry though and might benefit from a small feed now.
You do have a pH problem also and this is pretty normal where you are and on that kind of sand (which has good drainage but probably on the alkaline side)
When you buy some fertiliser choose a type that is for acid lovers - they are the one's for Camellias, azaleas, roses, blueberries...
Apply little and often on sands - or get a slow release type - to avoid leaching into the ground water (sands leach fertilisers readily as there is nothing in the sand to hold the nutrients in - like clay or organic matter)

Peach trees are deciduous, so it will lose all its leaves.
