My orange has been doing well, but we have just gone through a drought period. We then had very heavy rain. The leaves are now very yellow the new fruit is still small and reduced in quantity. Please advise what I can or should do ASAP.

If the tree is mulched you can pull back the mulch to aide in moisture levels in the soil.

You can try aerating the soil and applications of soil amendments to help loosen compacted soil.
