While most plants have been improving in the warm weather and light fertilizer, this one (1963.5 Stevens) in the 150 ft patch of couse! ...has not. Its turning yellow. Its not wilting so I do not think the roots have not been damaged.

Perhaps what hapoened here is I added calcium in the form of gypsum. And I added enough that its interfering with the ammonium and magnesium uptake. My soil doesnt lack iron. So altogether I think this problem is narrowed to just "excess" calcium. But there is no such thing as excess the plant is not wilting so I think pushing a lot more nitrogen and magnesium will be successful. Its often such a gussing game... but its getting fun as I get closer to knowing what Im doing...
