Ivy Plants Are Turning Yellow

Question From: L. McGregor - Delta, British Columbia, Canada
Q: Hi Nancy, I have ivy all around my garden, it's at least 50 years old. Last year some of it turned yellow and we were told to replant that bit as it was too old. This year the next ivy plant up is turning yellow - some of the leaves on the top of the plant are turning yellow from the outside edges. There are no blotches, just as if color is draining from the edge of the leave. The whole leaf then turns bright yellow and falls off. There are no spots or blight. Is this a nutrient deficiency? What should I foo abut it?

A: Lack of nitrogen will cause leaves to turn yellow. An application of organic fertilizer might be helpful. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
