Oklahoma's extreme weather conditions, regardless of the season, keep us asking the same question year after year. Am I watering too much or too little?
The signs of over watering are usually leaves that start turning yellow from the base of the tree or plant. The leaves that are growing closest to the trunk of the tree from the inside out will also start to turn yellow.
If a plant starts to die from the top-down/outside-in with dry crunchy leaves, it's not getting enough water. These plants usually look good at the bottom where the water supply only makes it up the tree so far.
If caught in the earlier stages, a plant that has been underwatered is an easier fix, more so than if the plant has been over watered.
