Q.Too Much Wood Ash Around Citrus
Recently, a lot of wood ash had been spread around my lemon tree and lime tree, and now both trees are looking like they are on their way out. Leaves on both trees are drying up and no lemons or limes on the trees. Can I still save these trees somehow?

You can try flushing the soil around the trees with water to help dilute the excessive nitrogen. In the future, you may want to consider composting the ashes first before using them around plants to avoid problems like this.
