Yellow leaves beginning

Posted by basjooman 8 (My Page) on

Hi, I am new here. I'm from the UK and I live in the south of the British Isles. It is concerning me as a few of the leaves have started to turn yellow, and I have no idea why. I water it when it is needed and feed it once a week with Miracle grow. Today I have giving it an iron feed as this prevents yellowing further. Have I done the right thing or will my Musa Basjoo now die??

I have some bananas w/ yellowing leaves too. I was watering them everday because it was very hot. Now I'm going to every other day. Keep in mind that these are freshly dug plants.

RE: Yellow leaves beginning

Perhaps the yellow leaves are older leaves going through their natural life cycle as they prepare to die?
