I would check your soils for excess potassium, as well as low phosphorus levels. It sounds like it may be something along those lines. Be careful to watch the pH as well. Try to keep it from neutral to slightly acidic. Really, though, a good soil with quite a bit of compost should be plenty. Try to incorporate wood ashes and keep an eye on pH.
