Why Are My Vines Dying


jad4254 added on September 17, 2012 | Answered

My Cantaloupe vines were doing fine. I had 4 melons that grew to about baseball size, then the leaves on the vines starting near
the roots started wilting and dying, which worked its way up the vine until the whole vine and melons were dried up and dead. WHY???
