This sounds typical of magnesium, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium deficiencies.

I recommend adding a HANDFUL of DOLOMITIC LIME per plant, and adding a bloom booster at half strength.

You can also amend your soil with compost, and dolomtic lime. This will have a similar affect.

If you can include photos, then I can rule out fungal infection, and conclude what is going on here.
