Thank you for the picture. I notice that this is in clay soil. This has a tendancy to be a little alkaline. This plant likes the be slightly on the acidic side. You can add iron sulfate to help here. Also, it would seem that the humidity is a little low. It would help to mist and water the plant in very early morning while the sun is still low. It could be that your compost has an infection, which the iron sulfate will correct as well. Make sure to add just a little bit of dolomitic lime to the soil to keep the pH stable, as a quick pH swing can also cause these symptoms.
