If you could post a photo of each tree we may be able to ID them for you and give much better advice.

If you could tell us how long you've had the trees, how you're watering, what the soil looks like, and how much light they are getting. That would help a lot.

Ditto, the more information you can provide, the better. And a picture (or four in this case) is definitely worth 1,000 words. ;)

In the meantime, it might be a good idea to pick up a book or two at your library or purchase them online. There's SOOO much information and so many little things that one might forget that it's really not possible to condense it all into a single post (or thread). Plus, with a book or two on hand, you'll have immediate reference.
