My Garden is failing . . . . . :-(
I hope someone can help me. We were so excited to get a new place in time to get some gardens going. We built the wooden beds and lined them with papers like we did before. Then we went to a local place to get a truckbed load of "topsoil" which was a pretty brown dirt. Well to me it was pretty. Then we added some of the bags of black cow, some vermiculite, and some mushroom compost. Everything came up and everything we planted is still alive, but it all just sits there not growing or anything. The color of the plants is sort of purple with a little green. All except the sugar snap peas which were prolific AND beautiful for a couple of weeks and are kind of dying back now. I came back a few weeks ago and added some Miracle Grow garden soil by digging around all the plants and working it in and things picked up a little. Some of the plants are a teeny bit more green now, but its been 3 weeks and everything is pretty much the same size. I even tried a little Epson Salt because I heard that the magnesium should help the roots. Again, a little tiny bit better but not much. I've also stooped to adding mixed Miracle Grow which seemed to help a little. Please help with any ideas at all.
