|A yellow appearance could indicate several different conditions. Blanched and tan or tannish yellow is probably weather-related. A true "yellowish" appearance could indicate a condition called chlorosis. This is due to a deficiency of iron in the soil. Iron is a natural soil supplement that neutralizes alkalinity and helps replenish the iron that occurs naturally in the soil. Apply as directed on the package. Be sure to remove the product from masonry or concrete surfaces before watering to avoid staining.
