What is wrong with my plants :(

Post  ChristyMC on 5/15/2010, 2:43 pm

Can somebody tell me what is wrong with my plants? My Dill is turning all yellow, something is getting my beans and my basil is a bit yellow too.

This is the dill.



These are the beans.



This is the basil.



When I made my Mel's Mix I did use 5 different types of compost, but I'm not sure what the problem is.

Hey ChristyMC,
I just saw that no one had responded to your post. Sorry about that. This place gets busy and it happens some time. What's the current status of your plants? Have they recovered or still yellowing? If they've recovered it could have been that they just got a bit cold. If they are still yellow you could have a nitrogen deficiency. Even with a blend of compost it sometimes happens. So what's the latest?

Yellowing plants

Post  BertieFox on 5/21/2010, 1:35 pm

I'd agree with Tim's comment as your plants look just like mine do when they go in a bit too early and get chilly. As the weather warms they should improve, especially if you give them a dilute liquid feed of general organic fertiliser. I'd recommend a seaweed solution sprayed on the leaves.
The beans are suffering from insect damage on the seed leaves, but the growing point looks healthy so this shouldn't be a problem.
The only other cause would be exceptionally limey soil or compost, but as you are using Mel's mix this shouldn't be the case.
