I live in North Qld near a beach and my new Tea Tree plant recently put in the ground is looking very sad.I am a block back from the beach so reasonably sandy soil. Full and partial sun. What can I do to rejuvenate the plant ? Thank you, Steve

"Looking very sad" is a conditon that is difficult to diagnose. If you meant that you have a camellia sinensis growing in sandy soil, consider if you have reently done a soil assay to ensure there are no nutrient deficiencies or toxicities. Also ensure that the plant gets morning sun until about 11am only, has acidic & evenly moist soil at a depth of 10 cm year around and has 7-10 cm of organic mulch. Test the soil at a depth of 10 cm almost daily in the morning on its first summer.
