Cucumber yellowing

Asked July 26, 2019, 4:27 PM EDT

I have three Marketmore cucumber vines in a container and on trellis. I used organic potting soil and used plants from a master garden sale in spring. The plant has been productive till lately and is turning yellow over the last three weeks. No male flowers are blooming and the females are turning yellow and drying out. Not sure how to fix this would love suggestions.

Thank you for your question. You don’t mention fertilizer, and cucumbers need a lot of fertilizer. Yellowing in leaves typically means too little nitrogen. Here is more care information: http://cru.cahe.wsu.edu/CEPublications/FS096E/FS096E.pdf Good luck!
