Drying up of Trees

Anonymous added on April 25, 2011 | Answered

We have a small garden in our home. Most of the fruit and fragrant flower plants areĀ five years of age, one the average. Since last winter plants are drying up one by one. We have already lost some citrus and guava plants. Some flower plants, like Yasmin and Marwah, were also dried. Apparently, nothing seems to be wrong with them, especially no over-watering involved. Can you please help me know the reason and some ways to reverse the situation? Can the affected plants survive?

    There are two things that I can think that may be causing this. Did you have a colder than usual winter? I know here, we have had unusually cold weather and it has killed many plants that did fine for years. Another reason may be unusually high winds. High winds can rapidly dry out plants, especially if they are not use to it. Do you have high winds? If so, this could be the problem.
