Yellow Leaves


Bevvers added on November 18, 2016 | Answered

At one end of a long border a mahonia charity, anenome huphensis and viburnum carlesii have all got yellowing leaves. At the other end of the border, the plants are healthy, including other anemones. Is there something wrong with the soil at this end of the border and what should I do about it?

These plants are suffering from a nutrient deficiency, most likely of magnesium and/or iron. See the below articles for how to supplement the soil with these nutrients. You may also want to have a soil test done so you know how much to apply and whether the soil pH needs correction.
