Too rainy in Ohio

Posted by nosambos 5b (My Page) on

I'm in Cleveland. April was rather dry but May has been wetter than usual. The plants in my native area are looking a bit yellowed and the random milkweed popping up is extremely chlorotic. Have any other locals noticed this? I guess the solution is dousing the area with Miracid fertilizer with iron. Any other suggestions?

I'm in NY not OH but our April rains came in May instead. I would not be too quick to fertilize natives. This too shall pass. Keep weeding to let in light and air.
