This is only happening with a few plants I put in the ground last week. Sunflowers and eryngium, specifically. Oh wait, and something I planted last fall but can't recall what it was (the second photo.) :rolleyes:

I'm thinking lack of nitrogen? Soil is heavily amended with old straw bales I was doing veggies in. Am I on the right track? Just need to fertilize?

No. I think it is just a little transplant shock and older leaves. Just snip them off and proceed with what your doing. The new leaves look perfect.

Thanks Chuck. Just being an overprotective mama lol. I probably will hurl some fertilizer at these within the next week or two...not really worried but wanted to head deficiencies off at the pass. I've sort of ignored this front fence area...

Thanks! Indeed, a week later and all the plants are doing just fine. :)
