The problem if that my transplants which look very good were planted 4 weeks ago in Pennsylvania. My soil was tested and came back with very acceptable results for all ranges.
The top leaf photo is of my parsely in a container, there is purple fringing of the leaves and the parsely is growing extremely slow.
The nice dark geen plant leaves, especially my Marigolds, are now turning a very pale green and with what looks like a splotchy appearance see the bottom leaf in the attached photo link. They look sick now and not that nice healthy green leaf. The top leaves look better but not the nice dark geen leaf as when they were first transplanted. I have used 10-10-10 fertilizer when I tilled my garden 4 weeks ago and I also included Ironrite to make sure that there was enough iron in the soil.
All my vegetables and flowers seem to grown very slow and stay small. The same Lady Luck marigolds would always grow 20-24 inches tall and just as wide for 20 years. Last year they only grew 10 inches tall and 6 inches wide. This year looks like the same is going to happen. My tomato plants grow small and not bushy at all. I tilled in about 10% mushroom soil this year hoping for a boost. The parsley is in a container with just fresh potting soil (no mushroom soil), a little 10-10-10, ironite and a little limestone.
