Another basil question
- CindyJ Jul 8, 2014 06:19 AM
What' might be causing the new leaves on my basil plants to be turning almost a yellowish-green? Thanks!
Not getting enough nutrients from the soil. I've never had that problem, so I don't know what to recommend, but I suspect they are planted in poor soil.
If they are in potting soil, then perhaps sunburn. In warm climates they can take a fair amount of shade, esp. in the afternoon. They have big leaves which tend to burn.
Are they in the ground or in a planter?
How often do you water them.
How much light per day?
I;ve seen far more yellow leaveswhen I try and contariner garden basil or short them of req's daylight/sun.
I;ve got 3 basil bushes going now but have been on the other side.
Not fun so I understand.
