Zucchini Leaf Yellowing

Anonymous added on July 7, 2011 | Answered

I have 3 zucchini plants in pots. In two of them, the bottom leaves are turning yellow and dying. I have tried not watering and watering, and I am stumped as to what to do now. There are drainage holes in the pot and they are planted in Miracle Gro enriched soil. Any suggestions?

Most likely it is a lack of sunlight to the lower leaves and they will be fine. This is pretty common. If the rest of the plant looks healthy, I would not worry about it. But just in case, here are some other reasons for yellow leaves: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/squash/why-squash-leaves-turn-yellow.htm
