Nutrient-Deficient (Yellowing Leaves) Pepper Fix – This Week In the Garden

Nutrient-Deficient (Yellowing Leaves) Pepper Fix – This Week In the Garden

October 8, 2019 9 By Ewald Bahringer


Now we’re going to take a look at our pepper
plant. We think there may be some nutrient deficiency going on with this. If you look
at the older leaves, you can see some yellowing. Again, for me, that’s always an indicator
of a nutrient deficiency, and you see this first on your older leaves, especially for
your pepper plants and for your tomato plants as well. What needs to be done is possibly
going back in with a nitrogen fertilizer, so we can green this plant up. We’ll put that
down, possibly do a side dress with that, water it in, and what should happen in a few
weeks is you will see this plant start to green up, and then from there, it should be
fine.
