The dreaded leaf curl

Posted by Cliver-McGuiver none (My Page) on

The dreaded leaf curl has hit me again. The first crop had bloom end rot on the fruit, and leaves curling up, yellow in the margins and purple underneath. I have found so many different opinions on this issue. I found a good page that says it is a calcium deficiency - so I have added a carbo-blast. I have also found that it might be a Mg deficiency as will.

Any opinions...

RE: The dreaded leaf curl

Deficiency of the macro-nutrients can cause this, mainly N and P. Also MG, Sulfur and calcium def. Lack of cal causes blossom end rot usually and the other deficiencies can cause the leaves to trun purple because the newer growth is pulling the nutes from the lower parts of the plants.
