Surfina problem....

A few of the Surfina in my hanging baskets have yellowed leaves and just a few of the leaves are mottled. Is this a soil deficiency or a disease do you think?

    Is there good drainage from the container?
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    You’ve got far too many in a small container, if you can remove all but three I’m sure they’ll be fine.

    They look hungry to me, all stealing each others food. I would just leave three, as Lyn says, and give them a liquid feed and some 6 month slow release fertiliser pellets.

    Yes very good, plastic lined with drainage holes near the bottom.

    They are large diameter baskets and have the same number (6) of plants as previous years.

    They have had slow release fertilizer pellets since planting and the number of plants is the same as previous years which have produced a wonderful display.

    ?Mystery. Is there any chance they could have been sprayed with glyphosate? Wind?
