Why is this happening to my squash plants??

Post  seppy13 on 5/24/2010, 4:39 pm

Does anyone know what might be causing the leaves on my butternut squash plants to shrivel up like this? The second picture is a zucchini plant that is turning yellow, not sure if it is related. All of my other plants are doing fine so far.

How often are you watering those babies?

Once a night if it doesn't rain. I dug down and the soil seems pretty moist, should I be watering them more often?

What is that mulch you're using?

I was thinking, perhaps, maybe letting them go with out water for a day or 2, see how they fare... that's what my gut says anyway. Rolling Eyes

I hope that wasn't a huge mistake on my part...I was a little short on Mel's Mix, so I added some hardwood root mulch that I had left over from doing some beds. I started mixing in some dyed mulch untill I realized that that probably wasn't a good idea and then added some un-dyed that I also had. Do you think that is the issue? And if so, any way to fix it? Thanks for your help!!

It could be. Why don't you water really well to wash out any dye. Then pull back the mulch immediately around the base of the plants. Then add some reliable compost and follow up with a broad spectrum feed. A good organic product or even miracle grow for veggies. See if that doesn't brighten things up over the next week.
