This sounds like a case of nitrogen deficiency. Use a fertilizer that is high in nitrogen, along with some dolomitic lime, as this controls pH, and sometimes the problem is not a deficiency but a pH issue. It cannot hurt your plant, and will only help anyways. I use dolomitic lime in all of my plants. These things should bring your plant back, as long as it is currently still alive.
