Why are my newly transplanted Italian dandelion seedlings turning brown at the edges? I recently purchased some Italian dandelion green seedlings which looked great when I purchased them. I transplanted them to larger containers and watered them according to some information I found online. After one week, the leaves are turning brown around the edges.
I used a mixture of clay soil and purchased organic soil enhancer that is supposed to break up clay soil. I also added a bit of coffee grounds. I live an area that gets very bright sun. The temperatures had been warm (70's) but dropped recently, though not below freezing. The days are still in the 60's. I am not certain if it is too much sun, water, wind, or the cooler nights. I am new to growing vegetables. Everything must be organic.
