This morning I watered my plants as I usually do every 2nd morning and to my surprise my Japanese Quince standard has alot of brown leaves. It has been 32 degrees celsius or 90 degrees fahrenheit for the last 3 days and last thursday we had torrential rain. I am in a zone 5b and the tree was planted in late June. I have another one, however, this one is a shrub, planted 3 years ago and it's growing like crazy. Please help, what should I do? Thanks

Just a thought, that it could actually be overwatering? We have 10 cherry trees - 8 Bing and 2 Tartarian, planted in two parallel rows. One of the Bings started looking poorly this spring, looking rather wilted with some leaves browning, so I was extra diligent with watering. It ended up dead. The nursery said it was most likely due to root rot caused by overwatering. He explained the clay soil could have caused poor drainage in that one spot - even though the trees are all together, and that the overwatering will cause the same "look" as not enough water.

Oh no, it was a heat wave, 32 degrees celsius = 90 degrees fahrenheit.
