Are a lot of your landscape plant’s leaves turning yellow? This may be a sign of a common condition called chlorosis, which is usually caused by a soil nutrient deficiency.
If your plant appears yellow on most of its leaves, it could signal a nitrogen deficiency.
If only the new growth is yellow, the plant may be short on other nutrients, like iron, manganese, or zinc.
But if it is the old foliage that’s yellowing, the nutritional deficiency could be caused by a need for potassium or magnesium.
Your county Extension office can help you get a soil test that can tell you what extra nutrients your soil may need.
