Yellowing fruit plants

fruitluvr13(SoCal 10)September 22, 2012

Hi, I'm currently having problems with my raspberry plants. I have two and the leaves on one of them are turning yellow. I have had this plant for a couple of months and it was doing really well at first but now I'm not sure what is going on. Only the older leaves are yellow and it is still growing new ones which are green so it may be normal. Also I have a pomegranate tree and it's leaves are yellowing and falling off. Thank you

Where do you live? Try giving the raspberries some epsom salt they tend to yellow with a lack of magnesium. It could be the same issue with your pom......though I have yet to figure out the poms.

'Only the older leaves are yellow....' Plants discard older leaves naturally. It is not necessarily a problem. And I imagine that even in z10 raspberries and pomegranates are deciduous or semi-deciduous. It is late September. Maybe the yellowing is just Autumn happening?

I live in California. I guess they may be losing leaves do to fall but lately it has been hotter than it was all summer. The pomegranate has been like that for a little while now but the raspberry is more recent. Is it normal on a raspberry plant to but have all the leaves near the middle turn yellow while the outside don't, not yet anyway. Thank you
