Leaf yellowing

Posted: 24/05/2013 at 19:32

I think there is a similar thread but this is a different problem......I bought some geraniums....alot are doing well but some new ones are getting leaf yellowing......they are all in an enclosed space and not planted in the ground......balcony pots....was wondering if it was iron deficiency....someone suggested too much watering.....they were quite heavy when I bought them and not dryish.

Thank MMP.......will stick to natural methods of coarse grit........

Suggestions please

We have heavy clay soil where we live.....have not had alot of success with anything lately but have planted an hydrangea.........I dug the soil.....broke it up......then dug a hole......grit at the bottom...fresh compost put in hole with a bit of soil.......slow release feed......have struggled with this garden but feel optimistic that the hydrangea will take.....fingers crossed.  A small Ivy I put there seems to be doing ok.

Can't get nematodes from garden centre......a friend suggested SALT.......do you think a couple of pinches around a plant would be ok as long as it wasn't too near.......not sure.....I know it would affect the acidity of the soil......anyone got any thoughts about this?

I have these two books which I find very helpful..........they come in a little box and are sold as one package.  After having said that you may get more info on the Internet looking up wildlife gardens and bees.....Sarah Raven is very good.

ISBN 13: 978-0-7548-2455-8

ISBN 10: 0-7548-2455-1

think the publisher is LB, doesn't say who the writers are.  Anyway there is alot of info out there, I think Alan Titchmarsh may have some books on it, anyway best of luck jody.
