I noticed over the last couple of weeks that some of my pansies are developing dark, bluish, outer leaves- what could be causing this? If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated!
Well, it is the cold that is causing this. Thanks Jan, and everyone for the helping hand- know it is appreciated :). I went out and took a look at my outdoor pansies and some of them have the same thing, not as dark, but maybe it’s because of the light they get? In any case I’ll just carry on as usual and plant them out in February at some point. I think next time I water I’ll be sure that the fertilizer has higher Phosphorus and also Potassium. In Shane Smiths book Greenhouse Gardener’s Companion he states that Potassium helps with stress and cold/heat tolerance.
Thanks again to everyone! It sure is nice to know I have so much help...all I have to do is ask :)
