Q.Almond Tree Leaves
I live in Saint Petersburg, Florida and was given two Almond trees last spring. I planted them and it both look very healthy. The larger one, about 20″ tall, has beautiful large leaves, but they have gone from a bright green to a dark purple. Is this a concern?

This, to me, signifies either of two things: 1. They could have experienced a cold snap, or 2. The more likely issue is that it has a phosphorus deficiency. These trees are heavy feeders and will need fertilization often.
