The video describes the process but if you have a general yellowing of leaves, starting from the bottom of the plant, it may be a magnesium deficiency. The entire leaf should look similiar in that it is getting yellow, in the green, throughout the leaf. Use about 2 tablespoons of Epsom Salt per gallon of water in your sprayer or watering can. Soak the leaves and the soil. Magnesium is absorbed quickly by vegetable leaves.

Good Luck!
