Answer: Hi Borzou,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

The brown edge of the leaves indicates watering related issues, either too much or not enough, unfortunately the symptom is very similar. I would suggest to improve watering and soil drainage. Try adding some Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate. It’s certified for use in organic gardens, and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
