Marianne CannonWhy has my plant got yellow leaves?

Yellowing leaves is a common problem on both indoor and garden plants. Today I’m talking with Steve Falcioni about how you can work out what’s causing yellow leaves on your plant. There’s a wide range of possibilities from leaf age and season, nutrient deficiencies, incorrect pH, low temperatures, over- and under-watering, to pest and disease attack.
