Yellow Leaves

Posted by homersgarden 7 (My Page) on

I posted something a while ago about one color of my impatiens not surviving, but now I have a new problem. Some of my impatiens are gangly and have yellowing leaves. I have NEVER had problems with impatiens before this year. Anyway, my impatien socks (plastic bag-like things with holes that impatiens grow out of) all have yellowing leaves, some of the impatiens in my containers have yellow leaves, etc. I have some that seem to be doing okay (these ones are in the ground). What am I doing wrong? I know we had a very cold spring and some of our tender crops have had a touch time this year (basil) and we are seeing issues, but not sure what to do. Thanks

RE: Yellow Leaves

Yellow leaves usually mean too wet to me... But the impatien 'socks' (I call bags) I've found dry out pretty quick, so yellow leaves because of being too wet... ? Did you purchase or make the bags? I make the bags and I know that when they first start you have to keep them out of the sun - completely because the bag can warm up and fry the roots inside... ? Could that be happening to you? Are they in the sun at all? I started my 'bags' months ago and just put them on my fence in the last week because I was fearful about the bags getting too hot... ? Probably a question for Mr.Impatien...
