Hi I Have A Nazemetz Feijoa Growing In A Large Pot. However It Has Been Consistently Losing Leaves For Quite A While, Especially I
n the lower parts of branches. I have another feijoa that's growing in a similar sized pot and it is doing fine (no leaf-drop). O ne of the branches has lost nearly all of its leaves (except for one). Sometimes just touching the leaves cause them to drop. Stro ng winds have also damaged only a few leaves, but I don't think that's the actual problem. Is it some soil/watering issue or som ething? Would appreciate some help. Thanks There seems to be some insect pest that eats the younger leaves. I have not seen it yet. Any suggestions on what it may be? I'm training my feijoa into a nice bushy shrub. Will the feijoa grow back in those places where it has lost leaves?

It is hard to say what the pest is without seeing them. The damage doesn't look too bad, at all, and it will likely recover just fine.
