I have two apricot trees, just a couple of years old in pots. The leaves of one are going yellow and dropping off. The leaves of the other are going brown from the tips inwards, and yellowing. I've a feeling I may not be feeding them enough of what they need, but I'm not sure. Any ideas anyone?



Have you treated the pots with the vine weevil treatment( these are little beetles that eat the roots and can often get into potted plants/ shrubs and trees.)

It could be over watered

Hi, Cordelia, have you made sure to water well? it sounds as though they may be dry, or not sheltered enough. Apricots usually need to be in a sheltered, warm place, preferably against a warm wall. They may be getting blown about too much by the cold winds that we seem to have had a lot of this year. Hope this is helpful, Annie (Cumbria)
