Plants turning yellow

Posted: Yesterday at 17:56

Very few diseases affect different species of plants and not many of those plants are particularly prone to insect attack  - it's far more likely to be a cultural problem.

I'd go with over-watering and possibly either under or over feeding as well.

Steve.  Don't fall for it.  There is no cake.  There is a cruel game going on here.  I have yet to have any cake 

I'll have to bring one when we visit Cornwall

I think, having consulted my book 'cos I'm not that good on waders,


1. Black-tailed godwit

2. Black-tailed godwits, adults in moult and juveniles

3.  lapwing - probably in moult
