Why dis my loquat tree that was very healthy when planted develop black or dark irregular spots for the last 2 years. It produces new foliage regularly but at times very young leaves became dry and don`t grow as well as the ones in the same shoot. Also, the point where the new shoots starts is always very dry. I have treated the mature leaves and the new shoots with the Rose Clear Ultra as advised with only little success. Should I water the tree sparingly given the fact that the soil retains all the rainwater being close to the water table? Will be very grateful for your advice. Kind regards, Maria
