Yellowing Leaves

the_bunny(8)May 7, 2005

I have planted some impatiens in a pot on my deck. They leaves of the plants have started to turn yellow. What is the likely cause? Too much sun? Too much/too little water?

Hmmmm. It is normal for lower leaves to drop but it could be also caused by to much water. Does the pot have a drain hole? Impatiens dont really like water logged soil. They prefer mosit but not wet.
