What is causing this on my parsley?

Zone Tamps, Florida | ajrsiu added on May 29, 2019 | Answered

tips turn brown/yellow and then the whole leaf/stem turns yellow. I live in Tampa, Fl and it's been hot, high 90's every day with no rain. I water each morning till it leaks through the bottom.. Soil is dry the next morning.

    Parsley will like to be on the dry side. Even though the soil looks dry on top, it will likely be wet still further down.

    This looks to be a case of overwatering, led to mild fungal infection. In this case, you don't need a strong fungicide. It will benefit from two doses of the treatment that follows:

    Mix 1/4 peroxide to 3/4 water. Water this in. Let the treatment work its way in for about a week, and water as necessary throughout the week (just letting it dry a little more between watering) and then do the treatment one more time the next week. Old growth will not recover, but new growth should come out clean.

    Thank you! I will give that a shot. Our rainy season is about to begin though with rain (probably heavy thunderstorms) starting the end of this week, every day. I have the plants in a raised flower bed (parsley, basil, thyme, oregano, rosemary and sage.) Should I move the bed under cover like my lanai? It will get direct sun there from around 1 PM till 6 or 7 PM.
