I live in rural Yuma County AZ. I transplanted established asparagus plants two days ago. They are rapidly turning yellow.
We transplanted from elevated beds with very high silt soil to raised bed.
The planting mixture in the raised bed is as follows. We purchased a product containing 50% composted manure. The remaining half is peat moss, gypsum, and pelite. We mixed 5 parts of the detailed product with 3 parts sand. Is this the cause of the yellowing?
