Fertilizer – Improve Fall Leaf Color

Q: I recently bought a house with many trees in the back yard. Instead of the beautiful leaf colors I was expecting in the fall, the leaves turned dull yellow or brown, then fell off. What kind of fertilizer do you recommend to make the leaves brighter next fall?

A: In this matter, the weather has more sway than the fertilizer.
