Why are the leaves on my peach tree turning yellow and dropping off? I pruned it last year in late Aug. Now the leaves are yellow and falling off, and I have very little fruit this year, where as in previous years have had lots of peaches. The tree is 5 years old.

It is either a watering issue or a nutrient issue. Make sure the tree is getting water daily, twice a day in temps over 85 F. And give it slow release (balanced) fertilizer that will continually feed it. This article should also help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/fertilizing-peach-trees.htm
