If that's Galvanized wire over plants, that could also be affecting plants.
Are types of soil in both beds the same ? Was ground tilled before planting ?
Philipwonel said:Ok. Then it's not the wire.
It's as Farmer Fill said. The layer of brown matter at bottom is all matted up, rotting, basically making a root barrier.
Its probably depleting, water and
nitrogen from soil.
I'd give that bed, a few extra applications of fertilizer, in between your normal fertilizing, to feed the brown matter.
Also, water it more than other bed.
Don't kick yourself. 😟
All us gardeners goof up.
Bye. Now. 😀
