Theresa,

I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!

Such yellowing of plant foliage is usually due to a soil moisture extreme such as dry soil conditions or soggy wet conditions which exclude oxygen from the roots. The remedy is to water only as needed to keep the soil moderately moist. If the plants are in a low area raised planting beds can insure better drainage during rainy spells.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
