Q.What Is Wrong With The Seedlings I Just Transplanted Into A New Planter?

Zone 19066 | Anonymous added on June 8, 2021 | Answered

I grew some plants from seed indoors and built a new raised planter outside in full sun. We filled the planter with 50% topsoil, 25% mushroom compost and 25% Black Cow (composted cow manure). Mixed well with some native soil which has clay composition. I transplanted some of our eggplant, cherry tomato and lettuce plants there and watered well. We’ve also had a lot of rain recently. They don’t look to be thriving and they have dry spots on their leaves. Lower leaves are yellowing and wilting and higher leaves have spots. Is it too much water? Too much fertilizer? Do I have an insect problem?
