Nasturtium leaves yellowing

Posted: 10/06/2014 at 21:33

I have grown nasturtium in a container and the leave are yellowing and look anaemic. I have some growing in the ground and they are very lush and green. I used two thirds old compost in the container as I read too much nutrients reduces the flowering of the plants however I am wondering if perhaps they are deficient in nutrients. I never water the container now as again I read this causes lots of foliage and no flowers however we have had a lot of rain lately. Should I feed them and what with?

I just spray sodium bicarb and washing up liquid on the leaves and it seems to be keeping it at bay

Soap solution for greenfly

Just out of curiosity as I have been using washing up liquid with good success am I doing any harm in using it?

Alternatively if you want to use a spray just but a little dollop in a litre. About the same strength as you would wash your dishes with. You can see if its working as they will all be dead in a few hours.

just put a dollop in the cup. I then make as many bubbles as I can in the glass and place the bubbles on the leaves.

I have another look and every leaf is affected. There are a few seedlings germinated at the base so I may cut it down and allow the seedling to take over.
