Q.

squash went into shock

Zone Arizona. Northern | Doleigh added on July 13, 2015 | Answered

My squash went into shock when I moved them. They have come back to life but still have yellow leaves. Do I remove them or hope these leaves? I moved them when the bottom of the garden fell out. I need to know if I should remove the yellow leaves so they don't take too much from the healthy plant.

Yellow leaves also can indicate a watering issue. Either to much or to little.

I would not remove any leaves until the plant begins to grow new ones.

Make sure your watering adequately.
