Q.What Is Killing My Pumpkins
Hey, I’m very new to gardening. About 4 weeks ago I started growing some pumpkins, and beets. To be specific I’m growing rouge D’etampes, Connecticut field, and Jack Be Little pumpkins, and I’m growing them all in grow bags. So far I’ve gotten really good success all the plants of grown and I have stems and leaves. But recently I noticed whiteflies, which I later got rid of with a mild insecticide. But even after the flies are gone I’ve noticed some weird things going on with the pumpkins. The leaves are dying and turning a white beige color. If anyone knows anything or how to help please tell me I don’t want my pumpkins to die!
