Zuccini Plants
Posted by Christie from Ohio on 2008-08-02 11:48:00

My Zuccini are doing real good this year except that I have noticed some of them are turning yellow and are being eaten from the center I cannot find any specific bug of any kind on them. Can someone tell me what I am seeing or what I should do for my plants. I would appreciate any information you could give me. Thank you, Christie

    Yellow... hmmm, are they yellow all over, just the stems or on the edges of the leaves? Have you ph tested your soil? Have you fertilized recently? If so, is your fertilizer the right kind for zucchini... which in my opinion don't always need a heavy fertilizer. They are a hardy plant that can go crazy on it's own.

    Are you getting fruit yet? How do they look?

    And one final question... do you see actual holes that suggest a critter or bug is invaded?
