Well, did you know that many 植物s get too much as well?
I recently made a house call for a client who was worried about her newly 植物ed 柑橘树.
This particular client has a large courtyard with several new 柑橘树 in pots.
The citrus were 植物ed in spring and as summer progressed, the client noticed the leaves on her orange tree turning yellow.
Now yellow leaves can indicate a number of different problems. 但在这种情况下 诊断相当简单 -她的柑橘树晒伤了.
– The areas of the leaf that are yellow are in the center and NOT along the tips or edges.
– The 晒伤ed leaves are usually located on the south and west-facing parts of the 植物.
– This particular citrus tree is in an area that receives reflected, afternoon sun.
在这种情况下, the solution is simple – moving the citrus tree to another part of the courtyard that receives afternoon shade is all that is needed to prevent further 晒伤 damage. OR, 50% shade cloth can be used from mid-May through September.
柑橘最好种植在至少10 - 15英尺的地方. away from walls, which absorb the heat of the day and re-radiate it out.
Avoid 植物ing where they get the full force of afternoon sun.
