The squash I've started in peat pots is turning yellow. Not just some leaves....the entire plant. I fertilize with fish emulsion/seeweed spray once a week and keep the soil moist, but not soggy. Where did I go wrong? Wasn't going to set them out yet for another couple of weeks bevcause we still have very cold nights.

They are in the greenhouse.....plenty of light as it receives sun most of the day.

Maybe the plants are getting too big for the pots? :confused: Dunno

Peat doesn't really have much nutrients, so it might be good to go ahead and transplant them into new larger pots with soil, maybe that might green them up?

guess light is not the issue then. I think the fish emulsion would give you plenty of nutrients for the leaves. Maybe a more balanced fertilizer? Or mosiac virus? If its an heirloom variety that might be an issue.

Well it's all the squashes, not just one, so it has to be something I'm doing.
I've got spaghetti squash, Kuta, Papaya hybrid and Magda.
So I stuck them in the ground about an hour ago. I hope we don't get more frost. We had frost saturday night and our last average frost date is supposedly april 28th.
Guess no one told mother nature :(
