I think I have found the problem:

PH...

Growing a garden outside for 50 years has given me a familiarity with ph.
Alkalinity and acidity. I read ph is not important in organic gardening so forgot about it.
Then I read, under a picture of a sick leaf which looked exactly like my sick leaves which were said to be 'phosphorus deficient'.
I knew my plants were awash in nutes and specifically phosphorus,
I read phosphorus can be locked out if ones PH is not right, i.e.. 6.2 - 7.

I have never used a ph strip but I have a ph kit and I am pretty certain... never mind,
I tested my rain water and it was 6 or 6.1.
Tonight I'll test my tap water and run off from my nute water and get back to you guys.
I'm really excited but don't want to get my hopes up, yes a do.


When was the last time all the leaves fell off your plants?


Thank you...


The Poet...
