The Q&A Archives: Yellow Zucchini Leaves

Question: Some of my zucchini plants have leaves that are yellowing and eventually dying. They tend to be the leaves underneath and closest to the ground. Should I be trimming these leaves off, or letting them die and disintegrate on their own?

Answer: I would remove the sickly looking leaves to prevent any fungal diseases from attacking the leaves and then spreading to the healthy plant parts.

Good luck with your zucchini!
